The Possibility Of A Normal Delivery If You Have Anemia While 9 Months Pregnant?
Hello, I want to ask if I can give birth normally if my blood HB is 9.9% at the age of my current womb 35 weeks. I really want to give birth normally.
Hello Rizma, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In pregnant women, blood Hb (hemoglobin) levels tend to be lower than women who are not pregnant due to an increase in the amount of blood volume during pregnancy.
However, hemoglobin values below 11 g / dL in pregnant women with gestational age entering the third trimester, can be declared anemic and are at risk of experiencing a number of complications during pregnancy and later labor such as:
Low birth weight Premature birth Suboptimal fetal growth Postpartum hemorrhage In pregnant women who have anemia, it is generally permissible to try to give birth normally as long as there are no other conditions that indicate the delivery process must be operative.
However, before, during and after the normal delivery process, the mother's condition will continue to be monitored and may get some medical treatment to minimize the possibility of various conditions that endanger the mother and fetus.
In the meantime, it is recommended that you take a vitamin supplement or blood booster recommended by your obstetrician to make sure you are optimally growing in your fetus and in good condition when giving birth.
I hope this helps.
