WHAT IS ANEMIA DURING PREGNANCY?

Anemia is defined as a condition where there is not enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to the tissues in the body. Lack of adequate nutrients and oxygen affect several organs. Anemia during pregnancy can be fatal as it is associated with low birth weight and premature birth in the baby and maternal deaths. Women who are pregnant are at a higher risk for developing anemia mainly because excess nutrients are required during this time. Anemia during pregnancy can be a mild condition and easily treated if detected early. However, it can become dangerous, to both the mother and the baby, if it goes untreated.1, 2

In Ayurveda, Garbhini-Pandu (anemia in pregnancy) has been described in classical text (Kashyapa Samhita). It explains that if a pregnant woman become weak and pale, her fetus gets troubled. This condition is similar to anemia in pregnancy and its complications.

In a pregnant woman (Garbhini), the blood has to provide nutrition for three causes - nourishment of mother’s body, for lactation and for growth of the fetus. Thus, a pregnant woman (Garbhini) is more prone to suffer from Pandu. In all types of PanduPitta is the root cause.3
