My doctor wants me to be 9 months pregnant and my Hb is only 86. What I ask for normal Hb is for pregnant women and what foods to add to Hb for pregnant women. Thank you in advance.

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Hb of pregnant women does tend to be lower than Hb of nonpregnant women due to an increase in blood volume in pregnant women (increased blood fluid component resulting in hemodilution). Pregnant women will be said to have anemia if their Hb in the first and third trimesters is less than 11 g / dL and their Hb in the second trimester is less than 10.5 g / dL. Because your Hb is now only 8.6 g / dL in your third trimester, you can be called anemic.


The most common anemia in pregnant women is iron deficiency anemia, therefore all pregnant women will already be advised to consume pregnancy vitamins that contain iron as well to prevent this anemia. Although it can help increase your Hb, iron supplementation takes time to increase your Hb to reach a normal Hb. Since you are now 9 months pregnant, chances are you will not reach a normal hemoglobin at the end of your pregnancy. You should make further consultations to the obstetrician (not just the midwife) for treatment and further management of your anemia and planning for your delivery later.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
