Essentials tablets while pregnant

Is it safe to take Essential tablets while I'm pregnant? It helps with
nausea. If it is safe should I take any other vitamins too?

Thank you and regards.

Thank you Purple and Maya for your advice! My doctor said I should take it but I started wondering when people started questioning me about it. Just want to be safe. Thank you once again and good luck with your pregnancies (if you are).
Kind regards

I agree with purple, please check with your doctor first.
Folic acid is very important during the first 12 weeks:)

My gynae told me to take essential for the nausea - and it did help. why not phone your gynae and ask though - I wouldn't take something without checking first.

ginger also helps with nausea.

You should be taking a pregnancy multi vitamin and folic acid.
