You could always get a prenatal without dha and take a vegan/veg dha supplement?

The most important, argueably *only*, thing that is necessary in a prenatal vitamin is folic acid.  It reduces the risk of neural tube defects in the first trimester.  It comes in prenatal vitamins or alone.

Also, there are lots of prenatal vitamins on the market that don’t have DHA.

if you want a prenatal with DHA, try brainstrong – they have vegetarian DHA, which has no fish oil

i’ve been taking them for a few months, and really like them

I got a vegetarian prenatal at Whole Foods that has veg-based DHA.

Honestly as long as you take a multi vitamin and folic acid, I think you will be okay!

You can get your DHA from a seperate pill, it doesn’t have to be an all-in-one. That’s what I do. (I use a fish-oil based DHA though, so I don’t have a DHA pill to recommend.)

For my prenatal vitamin, I take New Chapter Perfect Prenatal. I love it! It’s an organic food-based vitamin. Very easy on the stomach and easy to digest. No artificial dyes or preservatives.

2nd for New Chapter… I’ve taken both the Women’s Daily and the Prenatal.  Another wonderful organic, food-based vitamin is Garden of Life Vitamin Code RAW Prenatal (DHA free).  I was told the raw food form is more easily absorbed so the body actually utilizes more the ingredients.

I take the Rainbow Light prenatal vitamin and it is awesome. Never makes me sick, it’s all natural. No DHA in it so I take the Target Up & Up brand of DHA prenatal. No fish oil in it.

Like PP said, make sure you are getting plenty of folic acid prior to concieving. Good luck!
