Is there a prenatal vitamin on the market that is Paleo / Chris Kresser friendly?

That's the one I meant too, it's just that people know it better as "folate". Chris Kresser that I mentioned, knows the difference: http://chriskresser.com/folate-vs-folic-acid

Tetrahydrofolate is what folks want. As a chemist, the whole semantic difference between folate and folic acid irritates me so!

Yes, Kresser is mentioning them on his Baby Code, but you'd have to buy it to read about it. However, read the actual blog on his Baby Code site, some of the information there is free. For example, he suggests folate starting 6 months before getting pregnant (not folic acid).

I use New Chapter Perfect Prenatal; I've been taking it almost 3 years now (started a year before TTC, during my pregnancy, and now while I'm breastfeeding). It's an organic food-based vitamin. It does contain soy, but it's fermented soy.

I also took an additional 4000 IU of Vitamin D, fish oil, and krill oil.
