The Prenatal Essentials for Females
What you may be asking yourself right now
What's different about The Prenatal Essentials for females?
Our comprehensive prenatal blend includes easy-to-absorb Iron to help your blood transport oxygen, Vitamin D for calcium absorption and immune aid, and Iodine, Zinc and Selenium for thyroid support. This formula also includes Folic Acid and highly bioavailable Methylated Folate (5-MTHF), Vitamin B12 and Choline to support fetal brain, spine and nervous system development if you are already pregnant. Added bonus: Our DHA comes from algae oil so there's no fishy aftertaste!
Our medical and naturopathic doctors screened many prenatal vitamins on the market and ensured ours were packed with everything that they identified was missing from others. A key element in all of our formulas is the bioavailability of our raw ingredients - the vitamins and minerals are in their most absorbable form to ensure your body processes them efficiently and effectively.
I'm not pregnant or trying to conceive. Can I still take these prenatal supplements?
When can I start taking these prenatals and for how long?
Why does this product say 'for females' instead of 'for women'?
However you identify, our products are named for your biology, not your gender. The Power Prenatal for females is inclusive of all individuals with eggs and/or a uterus who are preparing or trying to conceive.

What's the difference between The Prenatal Essentials for Females and The Power Prenatal for Females ?
The Prenatal Essentials for Females and The Power Prenatal for Females share the same foundation of essential nutrients needed for pregnancy - Iron, Vitamin D, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Folic Acid, Methylated Folate (5-MTHF), Choline and Vegan DHA.
What's different about The Power Prenatal for Females is that it gives your eggs an extra dose of antioxidant lovin' if your body's clock is ticking. The Power Prenatal 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.
Is The Prenatal Essentials for females vegan?
What does B12 do and why do I need so much?
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!), it's important to cover your B12 bases with a prenatal 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. That's why we pack 1 mg of a bioavailable form of Vitamin B12 called Methylcobalamin in The Prenatal Essentials for Females, The Power Prenatal for Females and The Gentle Prenatal.

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 bought this prenatal originally because it was the only one I found that had the full dosage of all the vitamins I was being recommended to take! I love the convenience of the daily packets and the Omegas have NO aftertaste!
Absolutely love these vitamins. Bird&Be has manufactured this product to be idiot proof with a dispensing box, number packages and of course proper labeling. The Subscription Portal is easy to use when making changes and the customer service is phenomenal. My GP was blown away by the ingredients list. These pills have not been harsh on my stomach at all, I take them after breakfast and the Calcium / Magnesium Boost before bed as suggested.
I’m 15 weeks pregnant and have been taking the prenatal essentials the entire time. I haven’t felt nausea from the pills and so far everything is going well with the pregnancy. I like the ease of the subscription and daily pack.
I discovered Bird&Be after having a missed miscarriage that i found out about at 12 weeks with my first pregnancy. As a biologist who is used to approaching problems in my professional life by searching for data driven solutions, my way of dealing with it was to dive deep into researching whether there was anything I could do to increase the speed at which I got pregnant again (it took us 9 months the first time), and to reduce the likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities, which id learned are the most frequent cause of first trimester miscarriages. I wound up stumbling upon "it starts with the egg" by Rebecca Fett and learned that so much of the fate of a pregnancy is based on processes that take place in the development of eggs and sperm up to 3 months before conception, and having enough of certain nutrients can help ensure everything develops properly. Bird&Be's approach is largely informed by the research reviewed in this book, so I decided to give the Power Prenatal a try. After 4 months I was pregnant again. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and have switched over to the Prenatal Essentials. Everything suggests that this pregnancy is progressing well and baby and I are healthy. My doctor commented on my excellent iron levels during my first trimester blood work, which i suspect i have the prenatal at least partially to thank for because despite my desire to get as many nutrients as i could from my diet, at that point the only food i could stomach was yogurt, fruit, and salt and vinegar chips! It's impossible to know for sure how much my choice of prenatals influenced the positive outcomes so far with this pregnancy, but I feel better knowing that I took steps that were within my power to improve my likelihood of having a healthy pregnancy, and it's validating that things are going well.
I ordered them for my daughter in law. They have everything you need. They best part is her journey is a very difficult one and the response to my email asking what I should order was so fast and so caring and guided us correctly. But also they made sure we checked with her doctor. He was very impressed with the vitamins. She never had an upset stomach as most prenatal ones caused issues. She had energy and appetite. Unfortunately our journey has not ended the way we wanted but these vitamins have been amazing. And we will use them again. This company truly cares about what men and women have to deal with during these difficult journeys. I highly recommend
