Hi, do your gynae prescribe iron supplements for you during pregnancy ? How many mg per day? Thanks!

I don't think your ob/gyn will specifically prescribe you with iron unless required. Most of the prenatal multi vitamins already contains iron as part of the elemental minerals. Mine one comes with 5mg of iron per tablet.
