Baby & Me 2 is our beloved prenatal vitamin that was developed in 2015. Since then, we've expanded our prenatal family to include additional products that nourish both mom and baby - our family has grown again! Going hand-in-hand with the launch of these new products is a whole new look and feel that makes it easy to choose which product makes the most sense for you (and your little one!). We're proud to announce the launch of our Baby & Me 2 brand, bundling all our prenatal and postnatal products into one big happy family. Let’s meet them all:
First things first - Baby & Me 2 may feature a fresh new look, but remains the same trusted, doctor-formulated product you’ve come to know and trust. This two-a-day multivitamin is one of our most popular formulas, with a lot to be proud of! Crafted by our Chief Medical Advisor, Tieraona Low Dog, MD, this prenatal supports optimal nutrition before and during pregnancy with key nutrients like iron, vitamins B12, B6 and D3.* It features an important, and not so well known nutrient - choline - to support developing fetal health.* This prenatal vitamin also contains methylated folate, the active form of folic acid. And as always, it can be taken any time of day even on an empty stomach - a big win during those early months when morning sickness may make an entrance.
A companion product to the Prenatal Multi, DHA & Choline pairs two essential nutrients to support healthy brain development in the baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding.* This vegan formula features plant-based DHA from algae, combined with slow-release choline beadlets to deliver nutrients over a sustained period of time. DHA is an essential fatty acid, important for fetal brain and eye development.* Choline, a member of the B vitamin family, may help support healthy cognitive development in babies.*
Many pregnant women choose to take probiotics in addition to their prenatal multivitamin for foundational support.* MegaFood Baby & Me 2 Prenatal Probiotic + Prebiotic contains a blend of 14 unique strains and 30 billion live cultures, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus (HN001), which supports the baby’s developing immune system during the last trimester and early breastfeeding.* It also features ginger root, to help soothe an occasional upset stomach and support healthy digestive function.* Prebiotics support overall health and well-being, and function as nourishing food for our probiotic colonies.*
According to the American Pregnancy Association, up to 85% of pregnant women experience morning sickness. These individually wrapped soft chews are an herbal and vitamin solution to address morning sickness.* Formulated by award-winning women’s health expert, Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, these delicious soft chews combine vitamin B6 with farm-fresh organic ginger root, both known to help ease nausea related to morning sickness, as well as occasional indigestion and upset stomach.* Each chew has a honey lemon ginger flavor and can be taken any time of day, even on an empty stomach.*
After your baby’s birth, your nutritional needs change. MegaFood’s Baby & Me 2 Postnatal Multi is doctor-formulated to support optimal nutrition for mom after birth with key nutrients like vitamins C, D3 and E, plus minerals like iodine and chromium to meet changing nutritional demands while breastfeeding.* It also includes choline, which helps support baby’s brain development.* The herb Moringa leaf is in the formula to help support milk production.* Lutein may help support eye and brain health of mom and baby.*
Our expanded Baby & Me 2 line ensures optimal nutrition at every stage of pregnancy, including the “fourth trimester” - baby’s first three months of life. Postnatal support is a key piece of the nutritional puzzle for both mom and baby, and our new products ensure you meet those needs with little fuss, so you can focus on soaking up those baby snuggles instead of agonizing over nutrition.
You can also rest easy that you - and baby - are getting the quality nutrition you need. All of our Baby & Me 2 options are Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten, dairy and soy-free, plus tested for 125+ pesticides and herbicides and certified glyphosate residue free.
