Anaemia in pregnancy
Anaemia is when your blood doesn’t produce enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to your tissues and to your baby.
During pregnancy, your body produces more blood to support the growth of your baby. If you are not getting enough iron and other nutrients your body will not be able to produce the amount of red blood cells needed to generate the additional blood required.
Anaemia can make you feel very tired and weak. You will need to be treated for this condition.
