Due to this increase blood volume in pregnant women, the necessity of increasing their intake of iron, vitamin C and Folic acid will become important.
Anemia is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient amounts of red blood cells. They are needed to carry oxygen through the body. While there are several causes of anemia, iron deficiency is the most common case. When iron levels are low, the red blood cells are unable to carry oxygen to the body’s tissues.
There are several symptom may associated with Iron deficiency including the following:

Women with established iron deficiency anemia should be given 100-200mg elemental iron daily. They should be advised on correct administration to optimize absorption. The hemoglobin concentration should rise by approximately 20 g/l over 3-4 weeks (British National Formulary, 2010).
In case of nausea and acid reflux discomfort, it is better to start with lower iron content. Time release and enteric coated forms should be avoided
In pregnant woman with severe anemia, it is preferred to use higher dose than regular dose and then switch back to the standard antenatal dose to prevent recurrence of anemia.

If Vitamin B12 deficiency is occurred in early pregnancy, the it may end up to five times more likely to have a child with neural tube defects (NTD, such as Spina Bifida, compared to women with high levels of vitamin B12. Neural tube defects refer to a group of birth defects that affect the brain and spinal cord. The defects include spina bifida, which can cause partial paralysis, and anencephaly, a fatal condition in which the brain and skull are severely underdeveloped.
Folic acid, can significantly reduce the risk of neural tube defects and dramatically will decrease the incidence of neural tube defects and may play an important role in birth defect prevention.
