Iron Supplement alternatives

Hi mommies, just want to enquire, what are the alternatives for iron supplement. I am currently 26wks+ and taking Obimin as a daily prenatal vitamin along with fish oil. My blood test result showed that my Hb is low (9.5) and Dr has prescribed iron supplement. I am not in favor of consuming alot of medications. Besides beetroot, spinach and redmeat, are there any other food that I can consume to boost my iron level? TIA :)
