FEMIBION has developed supplements for the special phases of pregnancy, from before conceiving to the end of breastfeeding.  FEMIBION food supplements provide well chosen nutrients that, used as a complement to a balanced and varied diet, can support the mom and the baby during this special and exciting time.

Planning + Pregnancy
(without iodine)

Developed to support the special needs* of women who are planning to become pregnant or are in early pregnancy, as a complement to a healthy diet.

It pays to take care of your nutrition before you are pregnant, in order to help your baby have the best possible start in life. In general it is always important to follow a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle and particular care should be taken for this when planning a pregnancy and troughout pregnancy. Pregnant women have increased requirements for some nutrients as they also need to supply their unborn baby during this period. Particular care should be taken to ensure an adequate supply of folate*.

Femibion 1 contains a combination of well chosen nutrients, including most importantly a folate-mix (Metafolin ® & folic acid)*, developed especially for the planning phase and the 1st trimester of pregnancy.

Femibion without iodine is suitable for women who should not take iodine for medical reasons. Check with your doctor.

Nutritional Information

Femibion 1 Pre-conception + Pregnancy gives you and your baby all of the following:

FOLIC ACID a B vitamin that in the body is converted into folate to become biologically active. The human body needs folate, which contributes to normal blood formation, cell division and thus tissue growth. However, not all women are able to completely utilise folic acid.
METAFOLIN® a special form of folate developed and patented by Merck that does not have to be converted in the body but is available directly. Metafolin® is a registered trademark of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
VITAMIN B1, VITAMIN B2 and BIOTIN contributes to maintaining normal energy-yielding metabolism and normal functioning of the nervous system.
VITAMIN B6, VITAMIN B12, NIACIN and PANTOTHENIC ACID  helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
VITAMIN C supports normal functioning of the immune system.
VITAMIN D3 contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and has a role in the process of cell division.
VITAMIN E helps protect the cells from oxidative stress.


Recommended Dosage

Swallow 1 tablet per day with some water, preferably with a main meal. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Keep out of reach of young children. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced and varied diet and a healthy lifestyle.

*Folate (folic acid and Metafolin®) contributes to normal blood formation and the process of cell division, as well as maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, including the formation of the placenta. The placenta supplies your unborn baby with essential nutrients the baby needs.

Supplemental folic acid intake increases maternal folate level. Low maternal folate level is one of the risk factors in the development of neural tube defects in the developing foetus. Therefore it is recommended that women should take 400 μg supplemental folic acid daily over a period of at least one month before and up to three months after conception. The association between low maternal folate level as an important risk factor for neural tube defects has been scientifically proven.  There are further risk factors, therefore altering one of the factors might not in each case have a beneficial effect.
