Generally brands are just brands, do look into the ingredients more closely and take adequate dosage for pregnancy purpose. To be safe you can go for any pharmacy carried brands in watsons or guardian. Blackmores is one common brand. There are others you can go shop from there :)

Thank you for the info ๐Ÿ˜Š

can just buy from guardian or Watson pharmacy. $4 for 50 tablets, light orange/yellowish tablets. 5mg/tablet, taken once daily preferably in the morning. got it from guardian as recommended by my GP cos her clinic didn't have stock for it.
