Hemoglobin Test

A protein found in red blood cells is called hemoglobin. By measuring your hemoglobin level during pregnancy, your doctor can determine whether you have anemia.

If you do become anemic, your doctor will advise you about changes in your diet and may recommend an iron supplement.

This test is normally done during your first prenatal visit, along with other lab work, but it may be done more often if you are found to be anemic.
