A top-quality prenatal vitamin – that includes the right kind of iodine, and a methylated form of folic acid — is a foundational basic for any woman, from the months before conception, through breastfeeding.

In Your Healthy Pregnancy with Thyroid Disease, the importance and rationale behind a prenatal vitamin with the potassium iodide form of iodine, and methylfolate (instead of traditional folic acid found in many other prenatals) is explained.

There are not many prenatal vitamins that meet these requirements, but here we recommend five brands that have a minimum 150 mcg of iodine (as potassium iodide) and include the methylfolate form of folic acid.

You can get these brands at good health food and vitamin stores, and for your convenience, we are also including links to purchase these vitamins on
