In brief: Anemia after birth

Post-partum anemia is relatively common.
Some women will lose some blood when they deliver their baby and will need time for the body to replace it. Other causes are chronic nutritional deficits (especially iron) check with your OB about the proper way of getting your blood count back to normal.
