We are working with a couple of midwives and a mandatory part of their working with the pregnant women is that they be taking A*******e. It is food. Nothing artificial. You check out http://glycoscience.org for more information. If you need more info I can see what I can find. A*******e is safe for all ages. MannaC may be a little much during pregnancy, I don't know and instead of Catalyst I recommend PhytoBears. It is made specially for children and meets their needs.
