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 rich food: You may lose some blood after giving birth. It may cause deficiency in iron. You need to continue your multivitamins/prenatal multivitamin. In addition you may want to take iron rich food- such as spinach, beets, liver etc. Open this link- it may be helpful: www.Ironrichfood.Org.
