Floradix - how much should I take?

I have just been for my booking in appointment with the midwife and she has advised that I start to take more iron now, to try to stop me from becoming anaemic - I was anaemic during my last pregnancy and when I then had a PPH it took my a long time to get back to normal even having had a blood transfusion, because I had been so low in iron to start with.

My midwife has suggested that we go gently - I don't need iron tablets, just a little boost - and she has given me a sample bottle of Floradix to try. But there are no instructions as to how much I should take. Are a few drops in a glass of orange juice enough? Should I be swigging it from the bottle???

Any help gratefully received!

no you need to take quite a lot, i can't remember exactly as it was a capful - so a good tablespoon size.

it's really good stuff as it doesn't make you constipated.
