I used this Spring valley prenatal vitamin from the beginning of my first pregnancy until my daughter stopped breastfeeding. I was on regular diet, did not experience any morning sickness or fear/ crave for food during my pregnancy. With the help of the supplental vitamin, my routine blood check-ups were all at good numbers, regarding iron, blood count and other levels. I usually take the vitamin before bed or after dinner. On empty stomach, the vitamin just makes me feel extremely sick. With a glass of water and instant swallowing, I could not feel any unpleasant taste ( if any). 120-tablet bottle lasts me 4 months. So, in comparison with other prenatal brands, this one offer me good value. My doctor said that the brand does not really matter since any drug manufacture has to meet FDA standards to be on the market. I asked him about this brand and he supported me using it since I felt comfortable.
