Pre-Natal Multi-Vitamin Review and Giveaway

As a post-natal mama, I am still taking pre-natal vitamins to maintain my health and supplement as I breastfeed and my body returns to pre-baby state.  In doing so, I try to take supplements I know are giving me the most for my money and also giving me the nutrients I need in the proportions I should be getting.

Nutri-Gold's Whole-Food Prenatal Multi Gold vitamins seek to offer such things to women.  This pre-natal does not contain vitamins or minerals in the synthetic form.  A complex of food-based nutrients concentrated from 100% certified organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
This vitamin is made with non-GMO foods.  Each serving delivers 100% or more of the daily values of 19 essential vitamins and minerals for complete head-to-toe protection with no aftertaste.  It can be taken with or without food, which makes it convenient to take whenever your schedule allows.

In capsule form, these pills are a size that is moderate, but not in the horse-pill category.  They go down easily and have not given me any trouble with digestion, upset stomach, aftertaste or burps as some can.  

This prenatal offers the following benefits: 
Cognitive Function - Folate, B6, B12, Vitamin E, Magnesium, Organic Annatto Extract, Organic Lemon Extract
Hair and Skin Health - Vitamin A, Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), Folate, Biotin, Vitamin C. Vitamin E, Copper, Iron, Selenium, Zinc, Organic Amla Extract, Organic Annatto Extract, Organic Lemon Extract
Cellular Energy Production - Vitamins B1, B2, Niacin, B5, B6, Biotin, B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Magnesium, Zinc, Organic Amla Extract, Organic Annatto Extract, Organic Guava Leaf Extract, Organic Holy Basil Extract
Cardiovascular Health - Niacin, Folate, Vitamin E, Vitamin K2, Magnesium, Organic Lemon Extract, Organic Holy Basil Extract
Glucose Balance - Biotin, B12, Chromum GTF, Magnesium, Vanadium, Zinc, Organic Sesbania Extract
Bone Health - Vitamin D, Vitamin K2, Magnesium, Zinc
Prenatal Health - Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Folate, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Zinc, Organic Amla Extract, Organic Lemon Extract, Organic Curry Leaf Extract
Immune Function - Beta-carotene (and other carotenoids), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium, Zinc, Organic Amla Extract, Organic Annatto Extract
Pregnancy-related Nausea, Digestive Discomfort - Organic Ginger Extract

My only complaint is the serving size.  One serving is 4 capsules.  A bottle of 120 pills means a month supply.  I would much rather take one pill a day as opposed to 4.  Given the cost of a bottle (regularly around $40, but often on sale for under $30), these are not your local pharmacy's free pill.  Still, for the quality and ingredients, one would expect to pay a little more.
