Welcome to HCM,
There is no problem taking multivitamin supplements, folic acid and iron during first trimester of pregnancy.
You can avoid Iron if you are not anemic as there is chances of having constipation.If you are anemic then you can iron capsule having other salt and well tolerated.
You can continue with Pregnacare.
Ok and bye.
