To take or not to take prenatal vitamins

Some women do not really believe in taking prenatal multivitamins for their pregnancy. They reason out that women used to not need them anyway, and rely on food for their nutritional management. They further question the fact that some, if not most of these supplements are manufactured in the laboratory, hence unnatural.

I did take my multivitamins when I was pregnant because I know that I might not eat healthy all the time. It became a sort of nutritional "insurance" for me so that my baby gets all the nutrition that he/she needs.

What is YOUR personal opinion on this?
