You can’t stop the clock, but you can equip your team’s eggs and sperm with preconception supplements that go above and beyond. The Power Prenatal has all the go-tos you’d expect, plus powerful antioxidants and ingredients like CoQ10 and NAC to protect both parties’ DNA and fend off everyday stressors.

When Should I Add More CoQ10?
CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that helps both eggs and sperm max out their potential. Antioxidants help to protect eggs and sperm from free radicals damage and CoQ10 also helps to provide the fuel needed for growth and repair. You may need an additional boost of this powerhouse if you are exposed to more free radicals than your neighbour (think: chronic lack of sleep, drinking, smoking), or if you’re concerned about the quality of your eggs or sperm (if you’re older, have issues with sperm motility or egg quality).

What you may be asking yourself right now
Can we still take The Power Pack if we are pregnant and/or breastfeeding?
Yes! While it is important to note that there is currently a lack of significant research on the safety of prenatal vitamins taken by people who are lactating, all of our prenatal formulas have been cleared by our top doctors and prepared with your and your baby’s health as the number one priority!
However, since the Power Prenatal formulas contain many nutrients that you no longer require in pregnancy, we recommend switching to The Prenatal Pack to get all the essentials you need for your growing babe. If you are feeling queasy in pregnancy, start out with The Gentle Prenatal as an option that is formulated for sensitive stomachs.
If you need to switch your subscription sooner, email us at email@example.com and we will be happy to help you.
P.s. Keep an eye out for our postpartum formulas coming soon!
What’s different about The Power Pack?
The Power Pack’s formulas offer high-quality, super bioavailable ingredients that are ready for your bodies to use at just-right dosages, as recommended by our doctors.
The Power Prenatal for Females will give you a boost of CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), Trans-Resveratrol, and other antioxidants to provide your egg with the fuel it needs to perform optimally.
The Power Prenatal for Males will give you a boost of CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), Trans-Resveratrol, L-Carnitine and other antioxidants to protect your sperm cells from DNA damage and help them with count, quality and motility.
Why should both people with eggs and people with sperm take prenatals if they are trying to conceive?
An embryo receives 50% of its DNA from the egg and 50% from the sperm, so it is critical to provide gametes (reproductive cells) with essential nutrients in order for them to reach optimal health. In this sense, both the egg and the sperm should be supported by prenatal supplements on the daily while trying to conceive—not just one or the other.
Though it is often overlooked, our doctors always recommend that people with sperm take prenatal supplements if they are trying to conceive at any age. Sperm are known to be fast swimmers, but they need essential nutrients to be able to make their way to the egg safely and fertilise it. The Prenatal Essentials for Males can help boost sperm count, enhance motility and morphology, and provide protection from DNA damage. Meanwhile, The Prenatal Essentials for Females prepares eggs and body with 24 essential bioavailable nutrients that support fetal brain development, thyroid function, and more.
Why does this product say ‘for Females and Males’ instead of ‘for women and men’?
However you identify, our products are named for your biology, not your gender. The Power Pack is inclusive of all individuals with eggs and sperm who are preparing or trying to conceive, or for those who are already pregnant.
If you have a specific question about our products, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you find the right supplements for you and/or your partner.
Is The Power Pack vegan?
What does B12 do and why do I need so much?
First, for women and people with eggs, it’s important to understand how crucial B12 is in pregnancy. Along with its better-known counterpart Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 helps keep homocysteine from building up. That’s crucial because high levels of homocysteine have been linked to neural tube defects, pregnancy loss, preterm delivery, restricted fetal growth, preeclampsia and other cardiovascular complications.
And for men and people with sperm, Vitamin B12 plays a key role in sperm production and the male reproductive organs. Again, this has to do with its role in keeping homocysteine in check. High levels of homocysteine are known to contribute to poor sperm quality, low sperm count, reduced motility and higher DNA fragmentation. This can often result in longer times to conception and early pregnancy loss.
Unfortunately, it can be hard for your body to get enough B12 without a little help. In your diet, you can only get it from animal products, and your absorption can be affected by certain autoimmune conditions or even just taking antacids.
Because it’s so critical for pregnancy (and before, so that you can build up enough stores by the time the neural tube develops in early pregnancy!) and for sperm DNA replication, it’s important to cover your B12 bases with a great supplement. There’s no set upper limit for Vitamin B12 nor is there an established toxic level, but our naturopathic doctors suggest that optimal levels should be much higher than the recommended daily allowance in order to have a therapeutic effect. That’s why we pack 1 mg of a bioavailable form of Vitamin B12 called Methylcobalamin in The Power Prenatal for Females and 500 mcg in The Power Prenatal for Males.

What the experts say
I highly recommend Bird&Be prenatal supplements to all my patients who are trying to conceive. They provide a personalized and convenient approach, which makes their prenatals more efficient and enhances patient compliance.
I'm thrilled for patients to be able to access higher and more effective doses of key ingredients than I've seen in other prenatals - three cheers for choline and CoQ10!
Having an evidence-based approach to fertility-focused supplements is a key component to optimizing success, and it’s great that Bird&Be’s scientifically-backed prenatals are accessible to everyone, regardless of whether they’re seeing a fertility specialist.
Bird&Be has hit all the right marks for prenatal and preconception care. They’ve removed the guesswork from patients' supplement regimes, while emphasizing dose education and including usable, active ingredient forms.
Personalizing the formulas based on the individual's needs makes Bird&Be's supplements much more effective, especially for those who require a much more intensive regimen to support conception.
I’m seriously in love with these vitamins. My partner and I are both about 40 (he’s 40, I’m 39 and a half haha) and we have decided to start a family. I suggested that we both take vitamins, and like the honey of a guy he is, he sat down with me to research what we would each need. He actually found Bird&Be and we were both really excited about how it contained everything we had read would benefit us on this journey, all in one pack. It’s truly one of a kind! We were getting overwhelmed trying to piece it all together, or disappointed by other brands that all seemed to have missing nutrients. Bird & Be has it all. And I honestly feel incredibly supported knowing that my partner is on the journey with me - it hasn’t just become my job to remember to take my vitamins, but it’s something we are doing together for our future child. It’s now our ritual to ask if the other remembered to take their vitamins, and I think it’s a huge turn on for him too (he feels like he’s powering up and contributing and taking care of me/his family - the ultimate male ego boosts!). Anyways, I’m just grateful, and hopeful! I can’t wait to update everyone with good news when our time comes!
Amazing. We’re pregnant after using it for only 2 months!!!
Love this! We’ve been on the TTC and fertility treatment rollercoaster for awhile, and it was getting overwhelming trying to manage my prenatal supplements in addition to everything else. Having pre-dosed packets delivered monthly makes makes this stressful journey a bit easier. I also love that they’re always fiddling with the formula to make it better.
We have had 3 pregnancy losses and have tried it all (TI, IUI, and IVF). Our first round of IVF we yield two embryos, but the quality was pretty bad (6CC and 3CC). My husband and I took the power pack for 3 months and went into a second egg retrieval with MUCH better results (6AA, 5AA, and 3AB). The only thing we changed was adding these to our routine. Might be a coincidence, but I think not :)
I love that they come in daily pouches! They are so easy to remember to take and do not clutter up the counters.
