Abstract: Anemia is one of the most frequent complications related to pregnancy. Normal physiologic changes in pregnancy affect the hemoglobin (Hb), and there is a relative or absolute reduction in Hb concentration. The most common true anemias during pregnancy are iron deficiency anemia (approximately 75%) and folate deficiency megaloblastic anemia, which are more common in women who have inadequate diets and who are not receiving prenatal iron and folate supplements. Severe anemia may have… Expand
How I treat anemia in pregnancy: iron, cobalamin, and folate.
TLDR
An algorithm is proposed to help clinicians diagnose and treat iron deficiency, recommending oral iron in the first trimester and IV iron later, and the importance of treating cobalamin deficiency in pregnancy is considered. Expand
Iron deficiency anemia in women across the life span.
TLDR
Given its enormous impact on the health and well-being of women and the availability of simple and effective treatment options, anemia should never be left unmanaged. Expand
Anemia in Pregnancy: ACOG Practice Bulletin, Number 233.
  • Medicine

  • 2021
TLDR
The purpose of this document is to provide a brief overview of the causes of anemia in pregnancy, review iron requirements, and provide recommendations for screening and clinical management of anemic patients during pregnancy. Expand
Mild anemia during pregnancy upregulates placental vascularity development.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the lowered hemoglobin concentration during pregnancy may upregulate vascular growth factor receptors expression such as VEGFR-1 (Flt-1) and VEG FR-2 (FLK-1/KDR) is raised and it is hypothesized that hemodilution facilitates placental perfusion because blood viscosity is reduced. Expand
[Iron stores status at early pregnancy].
TLDR
A nutritional risk was observed regarding the iron status, demonstrated by the percentage of ferropenic anemia and because the main dietary contribution came from non-heme iron, which has low bioavailability, hence, their contribution to iron absorption was limited. Expand
Anemia en el embarazo, un problema de salud que puede prevenirse
TLDR
It is necessary to increase the coverage of prenatal care for all pregnant, and it is mandatory for health professionals to make appropriate control and optimal prescription of prophylactic iron in this population group. Expand
Parity-based assessment of anemia and iron deficiency in pregnant women.

TLDR
Anemia and low SF levels occurred more commonly in multiparous than in nulliparas, Further, low SF was a risk factor for anemia development in later pregnancy. Expand
The relationship between maternal anemia and umbilical cord oxygen content at delivery.
TLDR
Umbilical cord oxygen content is higher in anemic mothers, which may lead to adaptations in maternal, placental, and fetal physiology, allowing for easier unloading of oxygen to the placenta and increased oxygen transfer to the fetus. Expand
Intravenous iron treatment for iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy Gebelikte demir eksikliği anemisi için intravenöz demir tedavisi
TLDR
It seems that a degree of expertise and experience and rigorous adherence to protocols and precautions may be required for their safe and effective use, but the available intravenous iron preparations are effective and relatively safe. Expand
A Case of Megaloblastic Anemia with Thrombocytopenia
TLDR
Follow-ups are reported for a pregnant 33-year-old woman, G2, P1, with a history of previous natural childbirth who attended Kamali Hospital due to labor pain associated with severe thrombocytopenia and her platelet level has not yet returned to normal levels after 6 months. Expand

Studies of Iron Requirements in Infants. * III. Influence of Supplemental Iron during Normal Pregnancy on Mother and Infant A. The Mother
TLDR
The possibility was entertained that superior maternal iron nutrition might provide ‘reserve iron’ at birth sufficient to alter or eliminate this ‘physiologic anemia of late infancy’, and the present investigation was undertaken to study this possibility. Expand
Fetal growth retardation associated with inadequate haemodilution in otherwise uncomplicated pregnancy
TLDR
A group of seven non‐anaemic women with birth weight of the baby below the 2.5th percentile had a significantly higher Hb level in late pregnancy than the normal group, indicating that the seven cases represented a pathological group with fetal growth retardation. Expand
Clinical signs of normal plasma volume expansion during pregnancy.
TLDR
It is suggested that, for an accurate defining of pregnant women who are at risk, the actual plasma volume determination has to be performed frequently in the pregnant population. Expand
A STUDY OF PREGNANCY ANAEMIA: BLOOD VOLUME CHANGES CORRELATED WITH OTHER PARAMETERS OF HAEMOPOIETIC EFFICIENCY
  • F. Retief, A. Brink
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of obstetrics and gynaecology of the British Commonwealth
  • 1967
TLDR
Third trimester blood volumes were compared with postpartum volumes determined on the same patients and blood volume changes were correlated with the peripheral blood examination and measures of erythropoietic efficiency, such as bone marrow morphology, serum folate vitamin BI2 assay, and iron status. Expand
Studies of Iron Requirements in Infants * III. Influence of Supplemental Iron during Normal Pregnancy on Mother and Infant B. The Infant
TLDR
The purpose of the preceding study, in addition to the information it provided relative to iron nutrition in pregnancy, was to prepare three groups of pregnant women whose level of iron nutrition varied, and the description that follows deals with the influence of these three levels of maternal iron nutrition on that of their infants at birth, 6, IZ and 18 months of age. Expand
Serum Ferritin as an Assessment of Iron Stores and Other Hematologic Parameters During Pregnancy
TLDR
The results suggest that maternal body iron storage is depleted during the second trimester in patients who are not receiving supplemental iron, consistent with the concept that maternal serum iron is transported across the placenta by active transport and that a deficiency of maternal iron storage results in a deficiency in neonatal iron storage.

Nutritional anemia.

TLDR
Iron deficiency without frank anemia, however, does affect some segments of the U.S. population, such as pregnant and menstruating women and children. Expand
Iron requirement in normal pregnancy as assessed by serum ferritin, serum transferrin saturation and erythrocyte protoporphyrin determinations
TLDR
Serum ferritin was the most sensitive and specific test of iron deficiency, and a practical procedure to detect iron deficiency and to control iron supplementation in pregnancy is suggested. Expand
Increased 2Nd Trimester Hemoglobin Concentration in Pregnancies Later Complicated by Hypertension and Growth Retardation: Early Evidence of a Reduced Plasma Volume
TLDR
Findings are in agreement with previous observations in smaller studies and indicate that a reduced plasma volume may already be present in the second trimester, before PIH and/or IUGR appear. Expand
Maternal haemoglobin changes and their relationship to infant birth weight in mothers receiving a program of nutritional assessment and rehabilitation
TLDR
The haematological changes seen during pregnancy were studied in 1112 women registering in the public clinic of a large urban teaching hospital during the first or second trimester, finding no relationship between iron deficiency, as evidenced by decreased mean corpuscular volume or haemoglobin content, and pregnancy outcome.
