Hi there ~

It is completely safe to take the medications centrum materna and folic acid together. I understand your concerns and would encourage you to see a nutritionist if you have further concerns. I hope this helps. Also your obstetrician should be able to guide you regarding the anemia and the kinds of iron supplements that might be easily absorbed in a post partum condition.

Take care and have a lovely day!
