Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold


Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold provides an ideal dose of 20 important nutrients for mother including folic acid, iodine and vitamin D3, with supporting nutrients for baby. 

With omega-3 DHA to support baby’s brain and nervous system development, it also contains a lower constipation iron which is gentle on the digestive system.

Why use

Blackmores Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold provides 20 important nutrients in total including a daily dose of:
  • 500 microgram of folic acid which, if taken daily for one month before conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of having a child with spina bifida/neural tube defects
  • 150 microgram of iodine to help support baby's brain development
  • Lower constipation iron
  • Odourless and concentrated fish oil, rich in DHA for baby's brain and nervous system development

The Blackmores difference

All nutrients are important during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The following provides additional information on some special nutrients important during pregnancy and breastfeeding, that are in Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Gold.

Folic acid – According to guidelines in Australia* this product contains 500 micrograms of folic acid, as it is recommended that women of childbearing age take 400-500 μg of folic acid per day for at least one month before pregnancy and for the first 3 months of pregnancy.  

*Guidelines for preventive activities in general practice, 8th edn. East Melbourne: Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, 2012.

Iodine - Requirement for iodine is increased during the whole pregnancy, especially the first 20 weeks.
Australian women are typically not receiving enough iodine. The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recommends that pregnant and breast-feeding women take an iodine supplement containing 150 microgram* daily.

*NHMRC Public Statement: Iodine supplementation for pregnant and breastfeeding women. NHMRC, 2010.

Iron - Approximately one quarter of pregnant women report getting constipated when taking high doses of supplemental iron. That is why Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Gold contains a low-constipation, low-nausea, gentle on the tummy form of iron.

Omega-3 fatty acids - During pregnancy there can be an increased sensitivity to tastes, especially in the first trimester. Odourless fish oil means pregnant women can get the benefits of omega-3s without the fishy aftertaste. 

Vitamin D - Vitamin D supports healthy foetal development. A review of nutrient intakes in pregnant Australian women suggested that dietary intakes were below recommended levels for vitamin D, while surveys of Australian neonates have shown approximately 40-57% of neonates have insufficient vitamin D levels 

B group vitamins -
Vitamins B2 and B12 support a healthy pregnancy by helping the body to use folic acid.

Hi Blackmores Advisory, I found on the official website of blackmores singapore that the pregnancy products there have received AHAA halal certificate with an expiration date until 2021. Does this not apply to all blackmores pregnancy products and if not, why?
Hi, I Have been taking Blackmores preconception pills for 2 months and I am 40 days pregnant. Can I switch to Blackmores pregnancy and breastfeeding pills now? Or I can continue with preconception pills for another month. Kindly advice.
I have read in most trusted sites that the supplements should be taken daily up until 12 weeks pregnant. Why do you stop at 12 weeks? Can it be continued to be used throughout the whole pregnancy/until baby is born and breastfeeding? Thank you
