Answer: Hi dear
I am assuming you meant Hb.During pregnancy,the Hb level should be minimum 12.you should start iron supplements to increase it.dietary iron along with supplements should increase your hb.consume the following to increase Hb:
1- green leafy vegetables like spinach
2- beans and lentils
3- whole grains
4- eggs and meat
5-fruits like apple and pomegranate
6- animal protein like eggs,meat
Try to eat it along with vitamin C rich food to increase the absorption.
Donot take calcium and iron supplements together.if the hb remains low in later stages too,doctor prescribes injections for quick rise in hb,which is quite beneficial.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
