Since I came off my antidepressant medication when I got pregnant, I've been determined not to go back on it. Instead, I take a lot of supplements, religiously. Even when I'm knackered and going to bed early, I still take these. I credit them with my staying sane over the last two years - which have been somewhat bumpy.
Here is a list!
Pregnacare Breast-feeding: I took Pregnacare Max throughout my pregnancy; S's father insisted on buying them each month, because I was apparently growing a super baby, and only the best would do for her (when she was born early but healthy, he took credit for this; it must have been the vitamins he'd supplied that had made her so healthy). I am still breastfeeding S, but I also stockpiled several months' supply before my maternity pay stopped, so I will probably end up taking them long after I stop breastfeeding. They have 3 tablets to take each day: two with vitamins and minerals "for after pregnancy" - basically the same as any other multivitamin as far as I can tell - and one high purity Omega 3 capsule.
