Our expert says:
Your HB count will go up one point for each month you take iron ( it should be around 12 to be normal) When you are pregnant you need optimal oxygen and nutrients to get to the baby via the blood so it is better to have a good HB before you get pregnant. Your body also needs more oxygen when carrying a baby, so for the mother it is also better not to be anemic.
