diet and vitamin

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. Postpartum period is associated with excess demand of energy, nutrition, vitamin and minerals.

2. Hence make sure you take adequate balanced diet comprised of vegetables and fruits.

3. There is possibility of anemia. Please get hemoglobin checked to rule out anemia which is common after delivery.

4. These are also reasons for bruising on legs.

5. Meanwhile take iron and calcium tablets and vitamin suppliments.

6. These medicines along with balanced diet should make you better.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
