Is Yellow Dock the best thing to use if anemic during pregnancy?

I've been using yellow dock, in a blend of other herbs -nettle, red raspberry leaf. I found it worked for me. I got the recipe out of Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Healing for WOmen.
I've also heard that women tend to have success with Floradix blends. I guess it depends on what your preference it.

I'm using liquid chlorophyll, yellow dock, and Floradix.

Honestly, I've always had the best (and fastest) luck with yellow dock.

I use mostly yellow dock, but occasionally do a bottle of Floradix, just to mix things up. I was badly anemic before becoming pregnant, and it has done wonders for me. I think they both work well, but I can get yellow dock a lot cheaper than Floradix.
