Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

No need to take anything special - the foetus will usurp its needs from maternal blood, even at the expense of its mother.
Less medicines, the better
She is already taking iron and vitamins / nothing more is needed.
Normal diet / regular follow up with obstetrician - is all that is needed..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
