Prenatal vitamins are dietary supplements that women take during pregnancy and during the lactation phase. They are only intended to make up for any vitamin deficiencies in the mother's diet and not to replace natural food. They are similar to multivitamin tablets but contain vitamins in compositions as required by a pregnant woman. They also contain calcium and iron.
