In brief: Yes

It is ok to take iron in addition to your prenatal vitamins, but you only need the extra iron if you are anemic.
Your doctor will check your hemoglobin and will tell you if you need extra iron.

You would want to seperate the prenatal vitamin and the iron supplement to maximize your bodies abillity to absorb the iron.
Take 1 in the morning and 1 at night.
