I was using Johnson's brand prenatals. I bought them at Shoppers Drugmart, and I was paying about $16 -$18 I believe. Big bottle, of about 100 pills. Hope that helps!

I did a few searches, and I as far as I know elevit is not available in Canada. Perhaps this is something you could buy and stock up on when you come to Canada? Have enough for the rest of the pregnancy?

Prenatal vitamins are pretty much the same everywhere with the same contents. If you are looking to cut costs, you can use the Life Brand at Shoppers Drug Mart about 100 pills for $10.

I bought Jamieson also from Shoppers cause they have a higher vitamin content. $18 I think.

Yes and you dont need a dr for prenatals. All over the counter. My OB recommended Materna, even gave away free samples
