I applaud you on trying to eat a healthy diet! It can be very hard to do! Eating a well-balanced diet is so important for your health.

I wish I was able to give you a definitive answer, but recommending medications and supplements is outside of my scope of practice. I would encourage you to discuss adding any supplements or medications with your provider.

If you are struggling to eat your fruits and vegetables, I would encourage you to speak with your provider about your concerns. They are many ways to get the nutrients that you need through many different foods.  They may suggest continuing to take your prenatal vitamin.
