Pregnant women need to produce more blood to support their growing babies. During pregnancy, the amount of iron you need increases as the volume of blood in your body grows. Your body uses iron to produce more blood and provide your baby with oxygen. However, a lack of iron may prevent the body from producing enough red blood cells to create additional blood, leading to iron deficiency anemia.

Common symptoms in anemic mothers include fatigue, shortness of breath, and poor concentration. These symptoms, however, are often similar to general pregnancy symptoms. To determine the two, you’ll need a blood test to screen for anemia during pregnancy.


Good nutrition can prevent iron deficiency anemia during pregnancy. Natural sources of Iron include lean red meat, poultry, and fish. Other options include iron-fortified breakfast cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, dried beans, and peas.

To enhance the absorption of iron, drink vitamin C — such as orange juice, tomato juice, or strawberries.

Taking iron supplements while pregnant can also help reduce anemia during pregnancy. Terraferron contains Multivitamins + Iron. Terraferron helps PROTECT against iron deficiency in your PREGNANCY journey.
