I take Bariatric Advantage® Prenatal, do I need to take an extra calcium supplement?

The daily dose recommendations* for pregnancy supplementation after a bariatric intervention is 1200-1500 mg calcium in divided doses (= 2-3 chewables/day in between meals). Bariatric Advantage® Prenatal doesn’t contain calcium, because it doesn’t fit in the capsule, therefore we refer to Bariatric Advantage®  Calcium Citrate.
