    I switched to this brand about half way through my pregnancy and am continuing to take them now that I am breastfeeding. As the other reviewers said, it is annoying to have to take 4 pills, but they are much smaller than the other fish oil supplements that I've tried. The package says to take them throughout the day but I just take them before dinner all at once (otherwise I would forget).

    I do think that there is a difference in quality between this brand and others... even the color of the fish oil is different from others (it's more of a golden color vs. clear).

    Bottom line for me is that New Chapter is one of the best brands, so I feel good about using these even if I have to take so many pills.

    The only reason I'm not recommending this product is because there are so many more palatable choices available.
    I have taken 2 New Chapter products daily for about 3 years now and I love them. I have tried 2 more other their products on an "as needed" basis and they worked great too.
    I have always taken fish oils with lemon or orange flavor, but decided to try NC (unflavored). I can't tell if this one makes me burp more, or if the burps just taste so much worse that I notice more. New Chapter tries to keep their products very pure. Maybe there is a reason they don't want to flavor this product. But if they did start adding a little lemon, I would buy it again.
    If there were no other fish oil choices out there, I would absolutely take this one because fish oil CURED MY LOW-GRADE, LONG-TERM DEPRESSION OVERNIGHT. Please spread the word.

            I'd been using this throughout my pregnancy and still am now that I'm breastfeeding. I've had no issues - no odors, no upset stomach. Easy to swallow. I wait until drugstore has a sale (<17 dollars) and stock up. At 4 pills a day, I go through these bottles fairly quickly. I take 2 in the morning after my first meal and two after dinner.

              Since I got pregnant I've been doing extra research on the best products to use. My gyn prescribed prenatal vitamins that contained DHA but it costs $88 per month which is way too expensive in my opinion. When I found my ob, she told me prenatal vitamins bought over the counter work just as well but that I should also make sure I include fish oil pills if the vitamins don't have DHA. I found the New Chapter prenatal fish oil pills and gave it a try. I have been using them for at least 8 months. These do not make me nauseated and there is no fishy odor. I take 2 after breakfast or lunch and another 2 after dinner. I go thru a bottle rather quickly and wish they came in larger quantities.

              I love New Chapter Organics, but this product is way to pricey for what it is. I can get a high quality fish oil for $20 per month. Each bottle of this fish oil costs $12- $18 and provides less than a month's worth of supplement as well as less mg per dose. Not worth it in my opinion.

                I love all New Chapter products period. However, Whole Omega is one of the best supplements I have had before. Like another reviewer said; you can tell the difference just by the color.
                I never had any aftertaste, burps or symptoms even being pregnant.

                I am not sure why other reviewers complaint about the four gels a day? I think that is the reason why they can be small, easy to swallow and less of a chance to take a lot of oil at once and have symptoms. I also believe that I didn't have morning sickness because of NC's pefect-prenatal.

                Highly recommend this product.

                  I took these all through my pregnancy and am continuing to take
                  while nursing. I haven't noticed any fish burps, odors, gassiness or
                  any unpleasant side effects. I love knowing these are made from
                  quality fish oil and I am giving my body the best product out there.
                  I gave four stars because you do have to take four a day for a
                  serving and I wish they made a bigger bottle.

                          I was excited to get this product because I saw other reviews that said the gels were smaller. I thought I might have to take a couple a day to "add up" to the size of the larger gels, but I didn't realize I'd have to take FOUR A DAY! This is a lot, especially if you have morning sickness. I definitely noticed "fishy burps" afterwards, and I was extremely gassy and had a bad stomachache after taking the gels (but not before). Unfortunately, these didn't work for me [...]
