I have been taking a few different suppliments one of them is CoQ10. Is this ok to take during pregnancy or should I stop taking it. Should I stop taking it immediately or slowly taper it off.

Any supplements, I would ask your doc about... some are safe, others are not. Such as vitamin C, that is a no no while pregnant.

Call your doctor or obgyn. They have the knowledge and the training. They will know.

There are many studies showing some benefits such as lowering the risk for pre-eclampsia. Most doctors will probably tell you not to take anything because there's no evidence that it is safe,  that doesn't mean that it isn't safe- it just hasn't been studied. But more and more studies are being done that actually show some benefits. The question is how much is safe? I would think a small dose would be fine from what I've read.  Just do some research for scholarly articles and see what doses they are taking.  I think less than 200mg. But look yourself because I don't know,  it's just a guess based on what I've read and I'm not a doctor.
