Pregnancy haemoglobin

My partner is 28 weeks pregnant, her haemoblobin levels were taken at 10.2 gm/dl at the clinic. Is this cause for worry? She has been taking blood pressure pills, prescribed together with ferrous forte, from the 24th after doctor picked up that her bp was high. Additionaly pregnancy supplements (Folic, Multivitamin and Omega tablets) have been taken from the early stages of the pregnancy. What are the normal gm/dl ranges during pregnancy?

This is a little low. She should perhaps increase the iron dose. Foods such as spinach contain iron so it is good to eat these types of foods. Also tea prevents iron absorption, so she should cut this out. It will take several weeks for the haemoglobin levels to increase.
