Concerns have been raised about the benefits of Fe-containing supplements on infant birth weight among women with normal/high Hb levels at baseline. Thus far, no clinical trials have examined whether the effects of prenatal Fe-containing supplements on birth weight vary by maternal Hb levels. We compared the effects of Fe-folic acid (IFA) or multiple micronutrients (MMN) with folic acid (FA) supplements on birth weight among pregnant women with mild/no anaemia or high Hb levels. A double-blind… 
Compliance to Prenatal Iron and Folic Acid Supplement Use in Relation to Low Birth Weight in Lilongwe, Malawi
TLDR
Self-reported compliance to IFA use is valid for assessing prenatal supplement program in Malawi, especially Hb status, and can reduce the rate of LBW.
Safety and benefits of antenatal oral iron supplementation in low‐income countries: a review
TLDR
There is no evidence that daily supplementation at a dose of 60 mg leads to increased maternal Plasmodium infection risk, and the balance between benefits and risks is probably more favourable in low-income countries than in high‐income countries despite the higher exposure to infectious pathogens.
Multiple-micronutrient supplementation for women during pregnancy.
TLDR
The benefits of oral multiple-micronutrient supplementation during pregnancy on maternal, fetal and infant health outcomes was evaluated and a significant decrease in the number of newborn infants identified as low birthweight was found.
Multiple-micronutrient supplementation for women during pregnancy.
TLDR
This Cochrane Review evaluated the benefits of oral multiple-micronutrient supplementation during pregnancy on maternal, fetal and infant health outcomes and observed little or no difference between groups for the other maternal and pregnancy outcomes.

TLDR
The results based on a real-world setting reaffirmed that a prenatal nutritional intervention could improve the birth outcomes in cases of FGR and further suggested a better effectiveness on late-onset FGR.
Assessment of dietary intake and mineral status in pregnant women
TLDR
It was observed that the diet of pregnant women is characterised by low levels of Fe, Zn, Ca, Mg, vitamin D, and folic acid, and dietary supplementation with vitamins and minerals significantly increases the daily Fe andfolic acid intake in pregnant women.

  • 2019
TLDR
There was a high prevalence of macrosomia and LGA in non-GDM pregnant women in China and healthcare educations and reasonable body weight are necessary for pregnant women to prevent macrosomian disease.
Association of Early Interventions With Birth Outcomes and Child Linear Growth in Low-Income and Middle-Income Countries
TLDR
It is suggested that it is important to intervene early for child development in LMICs, during pregnancy if possible, and combine interventions from multiple domains and test for their effectiveness.
Selected trace elements concentrations in pregnancy and their possible role - literature review.
TLDR
Future research should be directed to explain the interaction between trace elements, and establish the optimum levels of macro and micronutrients supplementation, as well as determine the reference values for trace elements in the maternal serum, umbilical cord blood and amniotic fluid.

Impact of Prophylactic Iron Supplementation in Healthy Pregnant Women on Maternal Iron Status and Birth Outcome
TLDR
Iron supplementation during pregnancy in nonanemic women with low serum ferritin may have benefits beyond the prevention of iron-deficiency anemia.
Micronutrient supplementation and pregnancy outcomes: double-blind randomized controlled trial in China.
TLDR
Prenatal iron-folic acid and other micronutrient supplements provided to Chinese women with no or mild anemia prevented later pregnancy anemia beyond any benefit conferred by folic acid alone but did not affect perinatal mortality or other infant outcomes.
The effect of supplemental iron elimination on pregnancy outcome
Objective: To assess the effect of eliminating supplemental iron on pregnancy outcome. Methodology: A clinical trial was conducted at Alzahra hospital from 2007 to 2009. Nine hundred sixty healthy
Efficacy and tolerability of low-dose iron supplements during pregnancy: a randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is common in pregnant women, but previous trials aimed at preventing IDA used high-dose iron supplements that are known to cause gastrointestinal side effects.
Effect of high-dose iron supplements on fractional zinc absorption and status in pregnant women.
TLDR
In iron-replete pregnant women who consumed a Western diet, no detectable adverse effects on zinc metabolism were observed after ingestion of 100 mg Fe/d, and an increase in the efficiency of zinc absorption was observed during late pregnancy.
Iron supplementation during pregnancy, anemia, and birth weight: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Iron supplementation from enrollment to 28 wk of gestation did not significantly affect the overall prevalence of anemia or the incidence of preterm births but led to a significantly higher mean (+/- SD) birth weight.
Daily oral iron supplementation during pregnancy.
TLDR
Prenatal supplementation with daily iron are effective to reduce the risk of low birthweight, and to prevent maternal anaemia and iron deficiency in pregnancy, and the need to update recommendations on doses and regimens for routine iron supplementation is suggested.
Relationship between maternal hemoglobin concentration and neonatal birth weight
TLDR
Maternal anemia was significantly associated with effect on birth weight, and high hemoglobin (>13 g/dl) increased the risk of low birth weight but it was not significant.
Prevention of iron deficiency anemia in adolescent and adult pregnancies.
TLDR
IDA is common in healthy, iron-sufficient adolescent pregnant women during the second trimester, and body stores of iron decline in both adolescent and adult pregnancies, and there remains no clear evidence that maternal or neonatal health will benefit from correcting these deficits.
