Pregnancy related iron deficiency

Pregnancy related blood loss

Women at higher risk of developing iron deficiency through #pregnancy and #labour are:

  • #miscarriage followed by quick subsequent pregnancy
  • #antepartum or #postpartum #haemorrhage
  • 2 pregnancies within 3 years
  • 3 pregnancies within 5 years

The #brainfog, #hairloss and #lowmood can all be signs of iron deficiency.
