I’m also taking ritual and love them so far. I had a free month at first but after researching options I felt like they were the best option for me so I’ve continued with them.

I’m on Elevit – people have mixed reactions to it, but I haven’t had any real side effects. It was recommended to me by my doctor

Seeking Health. They are SO comprehensive, with good ingredients

In the lead up to TTC, I’m just taking some generic folic acid, but once we officially start I’m going to swap to the SmartyPants prenatal gummies. My CNM and a few doctors I follow online strongly encourage prenatals with methylfolate instead of folic acid, and they’re hard to find! Ritual has methylfolate, but are more expensive than SmartyPants (which you can just buy at Target).

I’m taking Ritual as well! Started taking them when I found out I was pregnant (after much research on different prenatals) and I’m currently 29 weeks and will probably continue to take them until I stop breastfeeding

I’m taking the Equate generic Walmart brand and don’t have any side effects at all! Also they have iron which I don’t think you can get in some of them (ie. gummies). And they have folate instead of folic acid which I think is a good thing.

Actif Organics.  They are food-based (no synthetic ingredients) and thankfully don’t upset my stomach like some others did.

I am in the midst of IVF and I am taking Prenate Mini, which is a prescription with a mix of folate and folic acid. It’s a pretty comprehensive one but I am slightly embarrassed to admit that even though it is “mini” it still sometimes feels weird going down (getting “stuck” sensation) so I may switch to a chewable version of it or the even smaller “pixie” version.
