Did you know that October is Non-GMO Month? What does GMO stand for? Genetically modified organisms. Why is this important when making healthy choices?
The experimental technology of genetic engineering forces DNA from one species into a different species. The resulting GMOs are unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional breeding. GMOs have not been adequately tested, and have not been proven safe for human consumption.

This October makes the third annual Non-GMO Month which was created to help raise awareness about GMO issues and to celebrate those brands that are Non-GMO Project Verified. They recently launched a new line of pre & postnatal vitamins, the first multivitamin line designed for each stage of pregnancy that are certified Non-GMO!
Did you know that you should start taking prenatal or preconception vitamins long before you’re trying to get pregnant? The first thousand days is crucial in a child’s life.
Vitamins For Your First Thousand Days
First thousand days. Yes, that’s one thousand days of vitamins.
This can be such an intimidating number—especially if you struggle with taking vitamins consistently. But this isn’t just for you—it’s also for your baby who needs their vitamins too so don’t stress out over this number! We’re talking about a little over 2 and a half years if that makes it easier to digest.
Why the First Thousand Days?
This was what I thought too when I saw it. But as a mom of a now 8-year-old, it all makes perfect sense.
Preparing Your Body For Pregnancy
When you want to get pregnant, there are a couple things that can help create a healthy environment for baby. A healthy mind and spirit free of stress are two of them as is getting physical—both in the bed and outside of it. These things are the more obvious aspects we think about. But what about making sure that the nutrients you need are present too? Honestly speaking, this is the hardest part for me. If we were to eat all the nutrients really needed, we would not stop eating. Therefore, having a vitamin that is comprehensive is important so there is one less thing to worry about.
Part of me wants to say that the first trimester was hardest but, pregnancy itself was just hard for me. Between
This is when people say they get their energy and don’t feel nauseated anymore. Lies. LOL!!!
But seriously. My second trimesters weren’t always filled with so much throw up but there wasn’t any glorious amount of energy. In fact
Homestretch!!! Yes! By the time the third trimester
Postnatal or Fourth Trimester
Because all my babies have been breastfed, the quality of vitamins that I take AFTER
Rainbow Light Vibrance
Friends. When I saw this vitamin line I was really excited for all of you that are either starting the process of getting pregnant or those who are. Why? Rainbow Light has taken all the thinking for us. The Preconception Multivitamin was designed to help prepare your body for a baby. The vitamin C and zinc levels help to support your immune system to make sure you’re in tip top shape. The first through third trimesters contain supplements that help with nausea, constipation (this is awful), and the brain development of baby. The Postnatal vitamins even include moringa, organic fenugreek, and organic fennel seed to help with breastmilk supply. These vitamins also contain both pre- and probiotics!!!
Not Just For Moms
Once baby hits 6 months through 24 months, Rainbow Light has them covered as well. They have a pre-measured powder that has a neutral taste, so it can easily be mixed into bottles, sippy cups, applesauce and other foods. How awesome is that!?
When I was pregnant with BC, I found RainbowLight and loved them. I chose them at the time because it was organic, Non-GMO, and Gluten-free. I normally don’t have issues with gluten but when you’re pregnant, everything you once knew about yourself is thrown out the window. But these were some of the only vitamins I could take and not immediately throw back up. They’re made from a quality product to help you create a quality baby.
Your turn: What have been your favorite vitamins to take while pregnant? What about after pregnancy?
