I could use your opinions.

If I kneel on the floor I get two big bruises on both knees. If I lean on my elbows, same thing...

I'm sure this points to some sort of difficiency?

If it's relevant, I had a baby 6 months ago.

Thank you!

Do you bruise easily in general?

It's always worth checking things out with your GP, this coud be anaemia or another deficiency, or a pointer to any if a range of conditions.

I didn't think I did bruise easily, but since I had my baby, I do appear to!

You are probably iron deficient anaemic. Happened to me after birth of each child. A simple blood test will confirm.
