Is your energy level down...vitamin deficiencies since you gave birth?

Since I had my kids I have not been able to naturally maintain vital vitamins like D, B12 and Iron...anyone else experience this? I now take natural supplements in a drink form since I hate swallowing pills.

    No, but with my last one I had low iron and after giving birth I kept working on my iron just to make sure it got back to normal again.

    I was okay during pregnancy but after I just could not maintain my levels...strange?? I hate taking pills which was part of my problem so I wouldn't take it routinely...plus you know what iron pills do to us when it's time to go to the restroom so I was a mess. Now I found a liquid vitamin supplement that actually taste good so I'm building up again!

    I used molasses, ate red meat and drank orange juice after to increase absorption and took my Bebe-O vitamins, which have been the ONLY prenatal vitamin not to bind me up!

      Yes, I do eat my leafy greens and high iron food because I hate pills. I also started a taste liquid vitamin supplement so I'm sure my levels will be really good soon.
