In brief: Depends

Starting with a good whole food based multivitamin is usually a good idea.
For more detailed info about your requirements, get a vitamin d level done and consider doing a broader based nutrient analysis. I usually use a tissue mineral analysis by analytical research lab.

In brief: Maybe none

Supplements don't replace bad eating habits.
Make sure you eat, real food, not junk/empty calories, sweets, soda, bars, etc. Eat protein at each meal. Stay well hydrated, easy on caffeine. Ample fruits, veggies (nature's antioxidant cocktail). Check that you are not iron deficient-very common in women your age; w/o anemia can be exhausted. Maybe a standard multivit as "insurance".

Use vitamin b complex since stress can decrease these levels and take an iron pill since you probably lost some blood with the deliveries and your iron stores are low. I agree with the vitamin d and.

Get tested for food allergy. Glutamine will heal and help brain - take glutamine 1gm at night will give you restful sleep - for stress you can take glutamine 1gm every 4 hours.
