Postpartum anemia: Do need iron and vitamins for a while after child birth especially multiple births and even more if breast feeding. Definitely get another CBC done to get rid of anxiety of undiagnosed condition. Look up sources of iron rich diet and start consuming them.

More blood tests: You need to check more blood tests. Such as inr pt ptt. Is your platelet count ok and do you take any blood thinners?
