A recent study published in Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences by GPHRF researchers explored the association between maternal hemoglobin concentrations and pregnancy outcomes, evaluating it in a continuous manner.

The study provided the most comprehensive and up-to-date evidence on the association between maternal anaemia and poor pregnancy outcomes, pooling data from 117 studies and over 4 million pregnant women.

GPHRF researchers provided a novel insight by assessing the risk by exploring hemoglobin concentrations in a continuous manner. Higher than recommended levels of hemoglobin have mild impact on adverse infant outcomes, however can increase the risk of maternal outcomes such as gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes, and pre-eclampsia. These findings highlight clinical guidelines to identify both low and high hemoglobin concentrations as at-risk groups for intervention.
