There’s no stronger bond than that between a mother and her baby. Whether you’re trying to conceive, already pregnant, or breastfeeding, you want to do everything you can for the new life you’re bringing into the world.
Natalis understands this. Right from the very beginning, our goal has been to support women looking to make a positive difference for themselves and their babies. Our pregnancy multivitamin is formulated using Australian health and dietary guidelines to help women to obtain key vitamins and minerals they may struggle to get, even with a healthy eating regime.
The makers of Natalis also work to support women and families in other ways. The ‘You and Your Baby’ section of this website is filled with handy tips on nutrition, fitness and good health related to your journey to motherhood. You’ll find advice from experts and other women who have been in your situation on how to manage different aspects of conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The wider community
We also believe in making a real difference in the wider community – and to the lives of women, their families and their babies through our partnership with Miracle Babies Foundation.
Babies born premature or sick can go on to face lifelong challenges and the experience can have a significant impact on the entire family. Parents of extreme premature babies are at increased risk of post-natal depression and anxiety. Without support, this overwhelming experience can have lifelong effects on the emotional wellbeing of these families.
Miracle Babies Foundation does invaluable work supporting the wellbeing of expectant and new parents with a baby requiring specialised care, ensuring that those in need receive vital, emotional support and resources to help them through their experience.

Nutrients for each stage
The first few weeks of a baby’s development are crucial to the rest of their life. In the weeks before most women know they are pregnant, their babies’ spines, brains and organs are rapidly developing. Folic acid supplements have been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube defects (such as spina bifida) during these crucial stages of growth.2 Natalis contains 800 micrograms of folic acid to support women in achieving their conception-period nutritional needs.
Women’s requirements for nutrients including folic acid, iron and iodine can all increase by at least 50 percent once they fall pregnant.4,5,6 However, the demands of pregnancy, including morning sickness and juggling work and family, may make it hard for some women to achieve this through food alone. Natalis supports women in achieving their pregnancy-period nutritional requirements by providing folic acid, iron and iodine to support a growing baby and mother-to-be.
Breast milk provides the nutrients that babies need to flourish and grow. Some new mothers may struggle to meet the increased demand for nutrients that feeding a new baby requires. Natalis contains a blend of essential nutrients to support women in meeting the increased nutritional demands of breastfeeding.
