ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of iron supplementation during pregnancy. It states that adequate iron in the body optimizes fertility, helps in the development of the placenta and in oxygenation delivery and brain development of the baby. On the other hand, iron deficiency can cause miscarriage, low birth weight, and iron deficiency in infants. It notes that iron supplementation is very important during pregnancy because it increases the serum iron that prevents the occurrence of anemia.
