Iron supplements: Iron supplements are the best way to correct anemia from childbirth. Other ways to supplement iron naturally is to eat red meats, and other foods rich in iron, such as spinach. Also prenatal vitamins with iron ensure that you get enough Folic Acid and minerals.

Iron and multivits: Iron and vitamins are natural. Take oral iron and multivitamin pills. Getting these trace ingredients from food will add to your weight.
