Has your wife been told that she's having anemia in this stage or just to make sure she's eating foods with iron? If she's experiencing an onset of anemia, as a lot of women do in this stage, your Dr. Or midwife should prescribe some vitamins with extra iron. Other than that, I really wouldn't take something without a prescription.
