Anaemia due to iron (Fe ++) deficiency or sideropenic anaemia is manifested when due to the lack of iron (Fe++) sufficient haemoglobin (Hb) cannot form which is essential for erythrocyte (Er) oxygenation. Angiopenic anaemia is a common occurrence during pregnancy and it is a concern for the mother because it is related to the birth of the baby with lower body weight, premature birth and mortality of pregnant women. Symptoms are: fatigue, inaptability, malaise, lack of concentration, insomnia, palpitations, paleness of mucous membranes and the skin, light breathing etc. In the United States and Europe (15-25% of staff), iron deficiency is the main cause of anaemia during pregnancy. Materials and Methods: The study included 300 pregnant women with an average age of 25.00 ±9.50 years. For the examination, we used the Concentrations of Erythrocytes, Haemoglobin (Hb), Haematocrit (Htc) and Iron, with measurements ranging from the first, second and third quarters. Results: From the obtained results for the examined parameters by the brutal gratitude in the third trimester a significant difference (for Er, Hb, Htc, Fe++) was observed for p <0.0001 in the first and second quarters compared to the third trimester and the healthy control group, compared with the healthy female control group (No-250). Conclusion: Prevention of anaemia during pregnancy should be corrected primarily by food as well as, in the most severe cases, with iron supplements (from 30-60 mg Fe++ every day), folic acid and vitamin B12. The follow-up of pregnancy anaemia and supplementation with Fe++ should be the first step of primary doctors and gynaecologists to initiate initial pregnancy anaemia symptoms in order to prevent and mitigate its effects on mother and foetus.
