Answer: Dear minimum hb should be 12-16 so your is not low . You can increase it with medicine and diet change The following ways can be implemented to improve the level of haemoglobin during pregnancy:
Green vegetables, especially the leafy green ones are very rich in Iron. For example coriander, spinach, mint and fenugreek. These vegetables are also rich in other vitamins and nutrients essential for pregnancy.
Dates and dry figs are very good in increasing haemoglobin levels. Other dry fruits like walnuts, raisins and almonds will also help in increasing the level of haemoglobin during pregnancy.
Pulses add a good amount of iron and protein to a meal. Have them like salad, soup or add them to bread for good results. Peas, Lentils and beans have a good number of vitamins, minerals, fibre, iron and protein that makes a balanced diet for pregnant women.
Eating fresh fruits like pomegranate and oranges are the best way to increase the level of haemoglobin during pregnancy. Pomegranates are very rich in iron content. Oranges are rich in Vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system of the body and in turn boost haemoglobin levels. Other fruits like Kiwi, peach, grapefruit, guava are also rich in iron.
Vegetables rich in Folic Acid
Folic acid is significantly involved in the production of haemoglobin. Vegetables like corn, banana, turnips, sprouts, avocado, lettuce, lady finger, etc. are very rich in folic acid.
