Abstract
High matemal hemoglobin levels have been associated with intrauterine growth retardation and preterm delivery. We used it to examine the relationship between the lowest hemoglobin concentration in pregnancy, birth weight of newborns and preterm delivery. The study included 2586 pregnancies. The result as follows. A group with higher hemoglobin(above 14.5 g/dL) levels during pregnancy has higher incidence of low birth weight and preterm delivery than norrnal or low maternal hemoglobin levels.
Key Words: High maternal hemoglobin, Low birth weight, Preterm delivery
