Anaemia is not only associated with pregnancy and can develop at any time. But the chances of getting a mild anaemia become high at the time of pregnancy. Therefore it is recommended to get a regular check-up for anaemia during a pregnancy. Also, pregnant women should include an appropriate amount of nutrients like calcium, iron, protein, vitamin d, iron etc.

For proper growth of the baby, the body needs a good proportion of blood at the time period of pregnancy. If the body is not getting enough iron, then there can be a deficiency of red blood cells.

As said above, mild anaemia is normal at the time of pregnancy, but if there is lack of iron and other essential nutrients, chances are that you may have severe anaemia.

What Causes Anaemia during Pregnancy?

It is very important for your body to carry oxygen to different parts throughout. But if there is a deficiency of iron, your body will not be able to produce enough red blood cells required to carry oxygen to different parts.

During pregnancy, in order to meet the requirements of the baby, the blood volume increases and with this increase, the need of iron in mothers body increases too. That is why at some point pregnant women may suffer from anaemia due to lack of iron in the body.
