It gives me reflux every time.

published

This is the first preg vitamins i took as soon as i got to know am pregnant. And it gave me bad reflux. Switched to Elevit and it stopped. I thought of giving Blackmores gold benefit of doubt as i had morning sickness throughout first trimester. So once i got to my second trimester i tried both Elevit and Blackmores Pregnancy gold (remaining pills). And every time i had Blackmores it gave me reflux, and no issues with Elevit. So to conclude I prefer Elevit anyday over Blackmores.

Purchased in September 2020 at Priceline.

Sickness

published

I took these the second I found out I was pregnant. About 2 days later I started vomiting them back up and it made my morning sickness so bad that I ended up in hospital at 9 weeks. I immediately stop taking them and my vomiting completely stopped.

Purchased in January 2020 at Chemist Australia for $20.00.

no side effects!

published

No Side effects! I've used two other brands of Pregnancy vitamins, all made me sick / drowsy or constipated
Since I've changed to this brand , I've been using for two days, no side effect, i felt less hungry and needing food all the time. ( extremely hungry is a sign of body needs some nutritious). Finally found something suits me !

Purchased in July 2020 at Chemist Warehouse Online Store for $49.00.

Best pregnancy vitamin out there

published

I started taking Elevit as I didnt realise there were alternative pregnancy vitamins. Elevit made me so constipated I went from going to the toilet 1-2 times a day to once a week and that was little black stools. It also aggravated my morning sickness which was horrible. I switched to Blackmores and was surprised about how much better I felt ! I was no longer constipated, it did not aggravate my morning sickness and I just found them easier to take in general. I will be taking Blackmores again for my next pregnancy, highly recommend!

Used throughout 2 pregnancies

published

These are great. Can be found on sale at woolies or chemist warehouse at a fraction of the RRP.
They are gentle on the stomach, don't cause constipation and don't repeat on you.

I used these throughout both pregnancies and during breastfeeding with no issues and did not need additional iron supplementation. Highly recommend

Good alternative to Elevit

published

I had heard from people who used Elevit that it caused them to become a little "backed up" so I prefer these. I find Blackmores easy to swallow, don't have a gross aftertaste like some multivitamins and you can pick them up for a good price when on special (which is often) at Chemist warehouse.

Easy to swallow

published

I had difficulty swallowing elevit due to tablet size.
So happy that this was recommended by my pharmacist as now do not have problem consuming it or making me nauseas.
Although comparing the products Elevit has a higher content of the vitamins and minerals however this does not bind me up as experienced with Elevit in the past.

Highly recommend..

published

I used these vitamins from start to finish of my pregnancy with both my 2 kids, and until i finished breastfeeding. Blackmores pregnancy vitamins were recommended to me by my midwife. I always felt great when i took my vitamins. And it's was great to be reassured i was taking the right vitamins for my babies.

Absolute best vitamins!

published

I used these vitamins throughout my entire pregnancy and now that I'm breastfeeding I still take them everyday. The vitamins are fantastic and I love that they don't make you constipated! They are competitively priced compared to other brands and I've almost always gotten them on special for $25 rather than paying retail $50-$60 for the 180 capsules.

Very happy with this product

published

I find this product really good- complete range of vitamins and minerals that I need for my pregnancy and can't beat the price. I haven't tried Elevit because Blackmores was so competitively priced. I have had no issues at all with constipation, gas etc. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I find the tablets a bit bulky to swallow- my gag reflex with pregnancy nausea is strong so I really have to concentrate to get them down!

Fine so far

published

Been using this for almost two weeks since I found out I was pregnant, no major issues, I can't say whether it's helping my vitamin levels but overall there's been no major constipation like others have mentioned.
I do feel a bit gassy/burping after taking it which lasts about an hour, I'd suggest eating - take tablet - eat a bit more because there is a strange taste that comes up too... the actual tablets are reasonably sized, have fish oil and have a 'pleasant' taste/smell when they are near/in your mouth (haven't dared to let it dissolve or bite it though obviously!) so thats always a bonus

I bought this one because it was 40% off at Priceline

Great pregnancy vitamins

published

Used blackmores Pregnancy gold with my 2nd child and had no issues or symptoms. Once in a blue moon I did get the fishy after taste but that never bothered me. Tablets are a bit big and you require to take two. Currently using it again for my 3rd and still no issues.

Constipaion, nausea, gas,gas, gas....

published

The constipation is unbearable ! I have been eating prunes, yoghurt, fruitjuices, plenty of water,etc... but still I'm extremely constipated, I can feel the vitamins flavour in my mouth all day since I've swallowed then they are like a brick ! I am 7 weeks pregnant but I look 6 months pregnant because I am so full with gas!!! I cant eat properly, because my stomach and my bowels hurts.... its a disaster,I already lost 3 kg,
but Im happy I found the reason....

good and bad

published

I've been taking blackmore's breastfeeding and pregnancy gold during pregnancy and a post-partum. Had no issues with it during pregnancy but since I've given birth, it gave me severe constipation. I wasn't sure what was causing the constipation until I stopped it and my bowels returned to normal...so really, it's a matter of trial and error.

Would not recommend

published

I started taking these tablets based on the reputation of the brand. After a week of severe bloating, horrible stomach pains and so much gas I have decided to swap to another brand that I had absolutely no problem with in my last pregnancy. Seriously - so bad are the gas/stomach pains it has been keeping me awake for hours at night. I have not enjoyed the start of this pregnancy at all due to being so uncomfortable.

3rd baby sooooo constipated!

published

I am now 10 weeks my Doctor recommend I use a supplement that had iron. So I choose blackmores as I have used it in the past it seemed fine. This time around after may trials with different things I have come to the conclusion this suppliment is the cause of my nausea, constipation and gas ! so as of Today I am officially giving it the flick . sorry but I won't be using blackmores again it just doesn't work for me this pregnancy.
