The effects of severe iron-deficiency anemia in pregnancy on maternal and neonatal outcomes were investigated in a relatively deprived inner-city population in a North London hospital. 212 pregnant women were included in the case-control study, 106 had haemoglobin (Hb) < 8 g/dl recorded at any point during their pregnancy. The control group, 106 women, had Hb >11 g/dl throughout pregnancy. The study group lost an average of 80 ml more blood at delivery and had higher rates of postpartum haemorrhage than the control group. However, severe anemia did not affect other maternal or neonatal outcomes; these may have been confounded by antenatal management with oral haematinics or blood transfusion.
