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.

You really should have a doctor. I take the Nature made kind, it seems to be ok.
My midwife wants me on prenantals with DHA. But you need to get in and be seen by a doctor!
Usually it refers you to a doctor because of liability issues. If it is an off the shelf prenatal they are NORMALLY safe. Do you have a free health clinic or toll-free numbers in your area you can call? I'm in Canada, and we also have mother-risk, but I don't know about the US. They will normally tell you all the concerns related to a medication, and WHY it tells you to see a doctor. DHA is in all sorts of things (fish, seeds, kids yogurt!), so I doubt that is why it says to see a doctor!
