How serious is anemia for the pregnant woman and the child?


We just got back the 26-week blood-work for my wife and they said she has a mild case of anemia, and told her to start taking an over-the-counter drug 2 times a day.

How serious is this? What are the possible consequences of having anemia?

Also, what can we do, besides taking the medicine, to further prevent this?

Thanks.
----------

It is very common in women when pregnant--and when menstruating... it can make your wife very tired and lethargic, and when anemia is severe, it can result in less oxygen being pumped through your body. I have had mild anemia throughout my pregnancy as well. It's not anything too shocking--pretty normal. She should be taking some kind of iron supplement--and there should also be iron in her prenatal vitamin. Some non-medicinal ways to prevent anemia are to eat a lot of veggies that are high in iron, and red meat. I take a natural iron tincture (I got it from herblore.com) as recommended by my midwife--it is a naturally derived iron supplement that is easier for your body to use than synthetic iron supplements. Good luck, I'm sure everything will be fine :)  (+ info)

I have PCOS too. For the anemia, my doc had me taking prenatal vitamins because there is iron in them. I don't think there is a cure for PCOS, we're just stuck with it!! :) Good job on losing the weight. I've only lost 15, but am looking to lose about 20 more.  (+ info)

Where can I buy liquid chlorophyll? Is it available at Walmart or do I need to visit the health food store? I have one nearby but if it is something I can buy some where else for less I would like to know.
----------

The best way to raise iron levels is to drink two tablespoons of liquid chlorophyll a day. You can buy it at any health food store and it doesn't cost much. I was seeing a midwife and was so anemic she said if I was at the hospital they would of given me a blood transfusion. They gave me a chance to fix it over a week. All I did was drink the chlorophyll and tried to eat more iron in my foods. I got my iron levels up so high so fast they were really impressed. Hope that helps and good luck!  (+ info)
