Abstract

Introduction: Anaemia impairs health and well being in women and increases the risk of maternal and neonatal adverse outcomes. So, this study was performed with aim to determine anemia related factors in pregnant women referring to health centers of Mane and Samalqan city. Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 221 pregnant women referred to health centers of Mane and Samalqan city in 2013. Data related to demographic characteristics, parity, gravidity, age, job, and age at marriage were collected via checklist. Hb Results: The prevalence of anemia between pregnant women in this study was 17.5 in 6-10 gestational weeks and 18.9 in 26-30 gestational weeks. Mean of Hb was lower in women who had history of anemia in previous pregnancy than those who didn’t have. There was a statistical significant relationship between previous mode of delivery, husband’s job, anemia in 6-10 gestational weeks, weight, BMI, Height, Hb and hematocrit in 6-10 gestational weeks (P<0.05). Also, there was statistical significant relationship between history of anemia in previous pregnancy and anemia of pregnant women in 6-10 and 26-30 gestational weeks (P<0.05). Conclusion: A history of anemia and cesarean section in previous pregnancy leads to increased prevalence of anemia. Also, there is a positive correlation between weight and body mass index and mean hemoglobin. Therefore, performing the procedures by the authorities about determinant factors in reducing anemia in the society seems to be necessary.
