About The Prenatal

An essential for pre-conception and pregnancy, Kin’s next-gen prenatal vitamins have been designed with 12 highly bioavailable ingredients to help you meet your nutritional needs during those crucial development stages.

Because 1 in 3 people have trouble absorbing folic acid due to a common genetic variant, our Prenatal contains activated methylated folate, which can be used by absolutely everyone and is necessary for early neural development.

Unlike traditional vitamins, Kin's Prenatal includes low-constipation iron for blood health, omega-3 for brain and retinal growth, and choline for brain and liver function.

After selling out twice, Australia’s most-loved prenatal vitamin is now back in stock, ready to support both you and your baby on the journey ahead.

12 bioavailable
ingredients

Supports growth
and development

No constipation,
nausea or reflux

Australian-made
and owned

Proudly side effect free

Finally, a prenatal that actually makes you feel good.

No constipation, nausea or reflux

Other prenatals might use Ferrous Sulfate, which is known to cause constipation, gut irritation and nausea. We use iron bisglycinate or Ferrochel®, which is carried unaffected through the intestine directly to the target tissues.

No fishy burps

This unpleasant side effect is caused by poorly processed, low-quality fish oils. The Kin Prenatal only uses a high quality, concentrated type of fish oil with a standardised quantity of DHA and EPA, and low mercury levels.

I’ve tried Elevit and Blackmores pregnancy prenatal multivitamin’s. I struggled with nausea with both. I started 2 months prior to conception and yay no nausea prior to conceiving. When my Obgyn ran all the test’s on my bloods, he was amazed at how great all my vitamin levels were. Including my Iorn which is notoriously low.

Thank you Kin this puts a new Mumma to be at ease x

Best Prenatal Vitamin I’ve tried
published 10 months ago
I’ve used most of them - Swisse, Blackmores, Elevit to name the popular ones. Quite literally Kin is the only one that I haven’t even noticed using. No side effects, no awful fishy after taste or smell, no heart burn, no headaches. They were the main effects of the others I got. But with Kin nothing! It is slightly annoying having to take on tablet twice a day. But that’s it. My husband takes the male one (only had to take one tablet) and he’s not had any side effects either. So as long as the Kin prenatal does what it says it does, which I’m sure it does, it’s AMAZING. Highly recommend. I don’t subscribe though, just buy a months supply as needed. This is an honest consumer review.

The only prenatal that didn’t make me sick!
published 10 months ago
I tried a few other prenatal vitamins in pregnancy and had terrible side effects; nauseous, cramping, fatigue, headaches. But not with Kin! Kin is perfect - I feel great afterwards, unlike the other popular brands!

So glad I found this product
published 10 months ago
I’m onto my second jar, I’m so glad I found this prenatla vitamin. I tried two other ‘major label’ ones when I first fell pregnant and they made me feel so ill and constipated, there were so many issues that I found disappeared as soon as I moved to Kin. I had a small gap between ordering my second lot and I feel like I noticed my energy dropped the days I didn’t have it. I would highly recommend.

Best prenatal
published 4 months ago
I've tried 2 major brands before I got pregnant. It didn't cause much issues then, though one was so bad in taste. Gag. But when I got pregnant it caused so many issues for me. Bloating, constipation, which lead to cramps and hemmoriods.

I found Kinf fertility off Facebook. I was skeptical but desperate. So I bought it and tried. It's soft and easy on my gut. no more constipation. Also tasteless, which was a big thing for me.

12 essential ingredients

Obsessively selected for baby’s development and mum’s health.
Folate
(652 mcg)
Crucial for baby’s brain and spinal cord development
Folate
Of all the supplements you've heard about to support a healthy pregnancy, Folate is the most commonly discussed.

Most supplements use Folic Acid as the key ingredients. However, studies have shown that approx. 1 in 3 people struggle to convert folic acid due to a common gene variant (the MTHFR-gene).

Kin's Prenatal is different. We use Methylated Folate (on the label as Levomefolate Calcium). This is the same Folate that's naturally found in your body. It's more bioavailable than Folic Acid and can be well absorbed by your body.
Omega-3
(900 mg)
Essential for retinal and cognitive development
Concentrated Omega-3 Triglycerides
Omega-3 is a generic term that refers to a category of lipids (fatty acids) that are essential to baby’s retinal and cognitive development.

This becomes especially important during the later stages of pregnancy, as baby’s brain is rapidly developing.

Unfortunately, the two most important types of Omega-3s (DHA and EPA) can’t be synthesised in the body, and need to be sought from our diets.

You can do this by eating huge amounts of low-mercury fish, but it’s much easier to control your Omega-3 intake with a supplement.

We’ve used a common, easily digestible fish oil that contains slightly higher levels of DHA, as this is specifically crucial for baby’s developing brain and retinas.
Vitamin B12
(5 mcg)
Synthesises DNA and red blood cells, maintaining foetal growth
Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is essential for all cell growth, but it is particularly effective at helping Folate work its magic.

With Folate, it helps to synthesise DNA and red blood cells, maintaining rapid foetal growth, and helps metabolise carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to boost energy levels at a cellular level. 

This also helps reduce the risk of birth defects.
We’ve used a synthetic form of B12 called Cyanocobalamin as it is a highly stable ingredient.
Iron
(10 mg)
Carries oxygen around the body, maintains healthy energy levels
Iron
Iron is the ferrous substance that never takes a day off. It carries oxygen all around the body via the blood, and is vital for maintaining healthy energy levels.
Studies have shown that approximately 38% of all pregnant women suffer from anaemia, with Iron-deficient anaemia being the most prevalent.

That’s massive.

Especially when you consider that your body needs 150% more iron when pregnant. If you are iron deficient prior to conception you may need up to 200% the amount of the recommended daily intake of iron.

We’ve used Ferrochel™️, a patented form of Iron that is easily carried unaffected through the intestine and into the target tissues. And, unlike many other iron supplements on the market, this one won’t make you constipated.
Choline
(55 mg)
Supports brain development and boosts liver function
Choline
The body needs Choline to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that controls memory, mood, muscle control, and other brain and nervous system functions.

The catch is, the body doesn’t make quite enough Choline unassisted—we rely on getting more from foods such as eggs, salmon, and brussels sprouts.

And during pregnancy, it’s considered essential, especially towards the third trimester, when the baby's brain and neural development accelerates the most. It also boosts liver function.

Kin’s Prenatal contains Choline in the bitartrate salt form, which is a stable, easily bioavailable form of Choline–the same form of Choline found in healthy foods, and easier for your body to utilise than pure Choline.
Biotin
(100 mcg)
Vital for gene expression and the creation of new cells
Biotin
There are over 2,000 genes in the human body that directly rely on Biotin. And they’re just the ones we know about.

That’s because Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, is vital for gene expression (turning a gene on or off).

When you’re growing another human, you’re creating new cells at a rapid rate making functioning gene expression vital.

Biotin also helps metabolise carbohydrates, protein, and fats, creating more energy during a time your body needs it.

Studies have shown that Biotin status decreases in the body during pregnancy, making it an important ingredient in a daily prenatal supplement for healthy foetal development.
Iodine
(220 mg)
Essential for thyroid function and growing baby’s nervous system
Iodine
Chances are you don’t often think about your thyroid. Which is fair, most of us don’t really have to: it just sits in the background doing its thing.

But the role it plays during a pregnancy is vital.

Iodine is an essential nutrient required for the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones, (the ones responsible for regulating baby's growth, nervous system development and metabolism).

We’ve used Potassium Iodine because it’s more easily absorbed, and is one of the easiest ways to support the 50% increase in Iodine that your body needs during pregnancy.
Zinc
(14 mg)
Supports your immune system to reduce the risk of preterm birth
Zinc
Zinc is vitally important to help support your immune system, to reduce the risk of preterm birth, and to bolster baby’s growth and development in utero.But there’s a catch: up to 80% of women don’t have enough Zinc in their system naturally, especially during the last two trimesters.

We’re using Zinc Citrate. It’s a bit more expensive than the commonly used Zinc Oxide, but it’s much more easily absorbed into your body.
Vitamin K
(65 mcg)
Crucial for normal blood clotting to reduce the risk of haemmorhages
Vitamin K
Vitamin K works with Vitamin D in assisting the body in absorbing calcium, transporting it from the intestine to where it’s needed.

It’s also crucial for normal blood clotting to reduce the risk of Haemorrhages (both maternal and foetal).

Transport of Vitamin K across the placenta is quite poor, so daily supplementation is key to ensure there is an adequate supply being fed to the baby.

Vitamin K comes in various forms: we’ve chosen Vitamin K2 in the form of Menanquinone-7— one of the most clinically validated forms of Vitamin K.
Vitamin B6
(1 mg)
Drastically reduces nausea during pregnancy
Vitamin B6
We put loads of good stuff for your baby in The Prenatal, but Vitamin B6 is just for you.
Simply put, Vitamin B6 has been shown to drastically reduce nausea in pregnant women (i.e. morning sickness).

These symptoms are especially prevalent during the first trimester.

It comes in the form of Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, which is readily water soluble and easily absorbed by the body.
Vitamin D3
(10 mcg)
Helps the body absorb magnesium and calcium for bone growth
Vitamin D3
A study by the World Health Organisation revealed that low Vitamin D levels while pregnant are associated with pregnancy complications like preeclampsia, low birth weight, diabetes, and increased rate of caesarean section.

Vitamin D is important because it helps the body absorb magnesium and calcium.
This is important at all stages of pregnancy, but especially during the second and third trimester when baby is growing strong bones.

We’ve added it in the form of Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3), which is the same bioavailable form that is made naturally in the body when skin is exposed to sunlight.
Magnesium
(30 mg)
Regulates blood pressure, synthesises DNA, supports energy
Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential element that plays many important roles in the human body. It helps to regulate blood pressure, synthesises DNA, and produces energy. 

Alongside Calcium, it also plays an important role in the development of a baby's bone structure in the second trimester of pregnancy.

But it’s during the third trimester that you really need it supplemented: baby grows so much that it can take the majority of your magnesium stores.

We use Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate for its excellent bioavailability. It’s also gentle on the stomach.

Why we don't use
folic acid

Folic Acid

in other prenatal supplements
Over 1.3 billion women worldwide.
That’s how many of us can’t easily absorb folic acid due to a common genetic variance.

So why, then, do most prenatal supplements still use it?

Because it’s cheap and readily available.

Methylated Folate

in Kin Prenatal
We worked with chemists to formulate something better, using methylfolate. This means you and your baby can reap the benefits of folate, knowing that it’s actually working.

Everybody can absorb methylfolate, and it doesn’t come with the same nasty side-effects some women experience from most prenatal supplements.

The Kin Prenatal is different

And for all the right reasons.
Bioavailable ingredients

The form of each ingredient matters due to ‘bioavailability’, so we use only bioavailable ingredients that every body can benefit from.

In the optimal amounts

You get only high quality ingredients in the ideal amounts, and never too much. It’s how we save you from nasty side effects.

Delivered sustainbly

We care about your baby’s future in more ways than one. When you subscribe to The Prenatal, we’ll send recyclable sachets to refill your jar.

“The Kin Prenatal is moving away from cheap ingredients and outdated formulations (typically seen in traditional vitamin giants).”
“Kin‘s Prenatal is not your average prenatal vitamin. They use bioavailable ingredients like Methylated Folate, which is easier to absorb but still gives you all of the benefits of folic acid.”
“The Kin Prenatal Vitamin has been obsessively researched, and includes highly bioavailable ingredients that your body can best absorb and use.”
“Instead of using folic acid, Kin’s prenatal supplement contains a Methylated Folate, which all women can easily absorb.”
“What sets The Kin Prenatal apart from other brands is their painstakingly sourced, bioavailable ingredients that every body can easily process.”

We did the research

Here's something you don't always see from your Prenatal vitamin: the research papers to back it.

We trawled through hundreds of studies. Here are our favourites.

Ask us anything

Our experts have all the answers.

How often should I take The Prenatal?

Take two capsules daily – either together once a day or 1 capsule, twice a day. Easy!

Are the capsules easy to swallow?

We designed our prenatal vitamins to easily fit into your routine, without turning your stomach! The Kin Prenatal Vitamins are about the same size as a standard multivitamin tablet and our environmentally-friendly, chemical-free extraction process eliminates virtually all traces of taste and odour. Plus, our smooth soft-gel coating means it goes down easily, unlike dry film-coated tablets.

When should I start taking a Prenatal supplement?

Nutritional experts recommend taking prenatal vitamins around 3 months before starting to try for a family. This is because it takes a while for you to reach a new nutritional status, and it’s important to reach these optimal nutrient levels before becoming pregnant, because the initial weeks of a baby’s life are critical.

In the first 28 days, some of their most important organs begin to form, such as the heart and neural tube, which becomes the brain and spinal cord. As most women don’t find out they’re pregnant until around 4-8 weeks, it’s important that your body is ready to support the baby, before you even know they are there.

How long should you take prenatal vitamins for?

Ideally, you’ll have started taking prenatal vitamins around 3 months before trying for a baby, but if you find out you’re expecting, then doctors recommend taking a prenatal as soon as you can. It’s then recommended that you continue to take prenatal vitamins as directed, as well as any other supplements your doctor recommends, all the way throughout your pregnancy.

After you’ve welcomed your baby into the world, you should then switch to a postnatal vitamin to help you meet your nutritional needs and address symptoms of postnatal depletion, like fatigue brain fog, and hair loss. Kin’s Postnatal Vitamins have been designed with 18 highly available essential ingredients, to help new mums recover and restore when they need the support most.

Can you take prenatal supplements if you’re not pregnant?

Yes – if you aren’t taking precautionary methods to prevent a pregnancy, but aren’t actively trying, it’s still recommended you take a prenatal.

Many healthy pregnancies are unintended, and by the time many mums-to-be find out they’re pregnant, most of the available benefits of a prenatal could have been vastly beneficial (especially the baby’s neural development).

Is it OK to switch prenatal vitamin brands?

Absolutely. While it’s best to check with your doctor first, if you are experiencing negative side effects on another prenatal or would like to try a different one for any other reason, you can switch to a different high-quality prenatal vitamin mid-pregnancy.

Can prenatal vitamins help you get pregnant?

Taking prenatal vitamins does not increase your fertility or help you get pregnant, but they do support a healthy pregnancy and can help prevent complications for both you and your baby.
