Re: Mother taking supplements- help or hurt?
I take prenatals, a calcium supplement, and a vitamin D supplement. My OB said to stay away from fish oil supplements because of the mercury risk (fish oil pills aren't regulated, so the mercury levels can vary substantially). I don't know about probiotics, but I shouldn't think they'd hurt anything. If you're really concerned, though, I'd recommend calling Infantrisk. They should know more!
