This is the first time I’m having more than one guest on at a time and I’m super excited to have both. Today I’m joined by Doreen Bloch and Dr. Nathan S. Fox. Doreen is the CEO and founder of Ellement, the first personalized prenatal supplement system. And Nathan is a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and an advisor at Ellement.
Ellement was actually a sponsor of the podcast last year and I invited them to come back because what they’re doing with prenatal supplements is pretty cool. The short story is that, unlike most prenatals, these supplements are made specifically for each individual person based on their unique needs or dietary preferences. I love the idea of things being more personalized and less one size fits all; I think that’s the future of where supplements and healthcare overall are headed.
Please know that I have no financial interest here. They are no longer sponsoring the podcast - I just want to share things with you that I think are important and useful.
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- Why we recommend prenatal vitamins
- When you should start taking them
- What the difference is between folic acid and methylfolate
- What role supplements should serve in pregnancy nutrition
- How prenatals can be deficient
- Why individualized care is important
- How Doreen’s personal experience with pregnancy and birth inspired her to start Ellement
- How the cost of Ellement stacks up against other prenatals or mixing and matching vitamins
