I am well out of my prenatal vitamin years, and have definitely been dealing with nutrient depletion after having 3 children and now just keeping up with them. I started taking a half-dose daily (4 pills) 2 months ago and I feel SO MUCH BETTER. I take 2 doses a day, one right after lunch, and one before bedtime, with water. I highly recommend these vitamins - you don't even need to be in the prenatal/postpartum/breastfeeding era to take them. I wish I had gotten to take them during my pregnancies!
