  • We used Elevit and had a beautiful baby girl born via ivf :) good luck xx

  • Yeah i agree with some of the other answers here to double check with your gp or ivf team incase your needed to have a higher dosage of something. For eg some mothers are low in iron and may need extra than what the regular prenatals have so just double check with your gp :)

  • I used elevit . Before, during and after

  • I started taking Elevit but after my Obstetrician told me that all pregnancy vitamins are basically the same, I just swapped to whatever was available. I chose based on the size of the tablet and how many I had to take a day and the price.

  • Iron is best I think!

  • We were recommended elevit by our fertility specialist. So took that since before getting pregnant (Ivf also). It can play havoc with your bowels though.

  • i took elevit with all my pregnancies and before them and while breastfeeding

  • I know one very important vitamin to take in addition to a prenatal multivitamin is Folic acid. Folic Acid 1mg twice a day while trying to get pregnant can prevent birth defects, especially in woman over 30.

  • elevit is great! doc recommended and usuable for pre-preg, preg, breastfeeding

  • I used ‘Blackmores conceive well gold’ for about 3 months before I started trying! I fell pregnant within the first 1-2 months with both my daughters (everyone is different of course) ! Good luck with your IVF x

  • I suggest visiting your pharmacist to ensure you get the right thing that is suited to your needs

  • I used Elevit but your fertility specialist will advise which ones are the better ones to take, they will also advise the man to take one too, Elevit does one for men.

  • Best to get advice from the IVF team.

  • Blackmores pregnancy and breast feeding Gold is the one I took with all 3 of my children and Fefol for folic acid and iron. Check with your doctor as some of us are low in Vitamin D too and it’s worth knowing about (especially likely over Winter)

  • I used Elevit, and I think it was great. It provided me with everything I needed and made me feel good inside- mentally and physically. Best wishes
