How much iron is needed after miscarriage?

or during, my wife is probably towards the end of it, started a few days ago, changes pad every 2 hours, pad is not soaked but needs changing. The doctor did a blood draw 2 times this week also.

normally was taking the prenatal with 18mg per day, so would you say 18 is good or should it be a little more for a while

    Depends on how her iron stores are at the moment.

    You could ask the doctor to check her iron levels next time he checks her blood ( if your wife wants to).

    So sorry for your loss.

    I don't know the answer but I felt like I should say that I am sorry for your loss.
