Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It's really hard to take all the vitamins needed through food alone. Especially with all the processed foods we consume today. Though you don't have to take prenatals there are studies that show how beneficial DHAs are for your growning baby and it's really hard to get through foods alone. But women have been having healthy babies for years without prenatals but just make sure your eating really healthy. I take them so I can stay in a routine of keeping as healthy as possible and so once I do start taking birth control again I will already be on a schedule. But its your choice.
