Transcript of Anemia
what is it?
anemia is when your blood does not have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to your tissues
why is it prevalent during pregnancy?
your body produces more blood to support the growth of your baby. If you're not getting enough iron or certain other nutrients, your body might not be able to produce the amount of red blood cells it needs to make this additional blood.
How does anemia affect A pregnant Woman?
what are the risks for the unborn child or how does it affect the baby?
the baby might not get enough iron it needs to survive through the nine months of the pregnancy or the first year of life. when the baby is born there may be a chance of the baby being anemic.
what dietary alterations can be made to prevent or decrease the issue?
does it last the entire pregnancy? when does it start or end?
can it affect the mother and/or child after the birth?
yes, it can affect the baby. the baby might possible become anemic and may have to take certain vitamins to get the iron he/ she needs to get through.
overeating fast foods and processed foods do not get the necessary iron and folic acid in their diets to maintain adequate red blood cells. When pregnancy occurs there is an increased need for these cells to carry the oxygen and nutrients to the baby. The baby will take what it needs from mom and if she doesn’t have enough left over for herself she will become anemic. She may notice that she feels tired, short of breath, has headaches, feels feint, feels cold or is just more lethargic.
