•Anemia Test

This is a check to see that there is no anemia and no abnormalities in the number of platelets.  During the pregnancy, in order to supply blood to the fetus, your own blood volume will be at 1.5 times the usual.  Due to the blood being diluted it is likely to have a state of anemia.   If it becomes worse, heart palpitations and shortness of breath will appear, and because the fetus will become anemic too, if you have anemia you may need to take iron orally, or visit the hospital for injections.  Let’s take a diet that is high in iron than usual during the pregnancy.  For those who are not fond of eating like this, we don’t mind if you use a supplement.
