The Blood Builder has worked better than anything else I've tried, including 2 expensive prescription iron pills. The bottle says to take 1 tablet daily, but I take 2 a day. You would want to ask your doctor or midwife before taking 2 though.
This stuff is insane. I have struggled with anemia since I started my period and its only gotten worse as I've had kids. I found this stuff a month or two ago and I have felt a million times better.
