Healthy baby after Cesarian section

I gave birth to my 2nd Daughter on the 30th of march 2008 (one day early lol) by an emergency cesarian.I went in to hospital about 9:00am after my contractions started about 6:30am,I had an epidural staight away and I was pushing for 2 hours when they told me that Skyla's head was facing up and it was tilted so her forehead was banging against my pelvis.they then said i had to have an emergency cesarian...then at 12:30pm my beautiful Skyla Grace was born weighing 6lb 12oz (very tiny).I came home 2 days later after refusing a blood transfusion (very stupid) ,as i lost way more blood than i should have done.then the day after that my partner Mike took me back in so i could have a blood transfusion as i collapsed.my iron level was only 7.6 so i was silly not to have had it done in the first place.Anyway home again now and enjoying my newborn and Raven Iris is enjoying her little sister too.

im not very sure, but if your iron level is still pretty low, i would not stop taking the tablets. But i dont think im the best person to ask about that. sorry
