Unlike other friendly bacteria supplements on the market, ‘Pregnancy’ contains 3 high-quality strains which are extensively researched in and carefully selected for pregnancy from conception through to birth, as well as for post-birth and breastfeeding.

  • Take 1 capsule daily, preferably with breakfast.
  • For those unable to swallow capsules, open and mix contents with a cool drink/food.
  • Do not exceed recommended daily dosage.
  • May be taken on an ongoing basis or as professionally directed.
  • For best results use daily.

Supporting Information

Morning sickness and/or nausea is a common symptom in pregnancy and therefore pregnant women often prefer taking supplements in the form of capsules. To make taking Pregnancy capsules as easy as possible, we recommend tilting the head forward to swallow the capsule. Details below:

  • When swallowing tablets, it’s common to put the tablet in your mouth, drink some water and knock the head back to swallow it (i.e. look up before swallowing). Doing this uses the weight of the tablet to move it to the back of the throat and makes it easier to swallow successfully.
  • With a capsule, however, this won’t work because of the air in the capsule. Instead, while the capsule and water are in the mouth, we recommend to look down before swallowing. This will buoy the capsule to the top of the water (back of the throat) and make it easier to swallow, particularly if morning sickness and/or nausea are a problem for the individual.
