Abstract

Anemia is one of the most common blood diseases in the world. During pregnancy, the body produces more blood for the baby to grow. However, if you don't get enough iron and other nutrients, the body may not be able to produce red blood cells to make that extra blood. It is normal to have a minor degree of anemia during pregnancy, but if it is severe and left untreated it can increase the risk of serious complications such as premature birth. Pregnancy and childbirth complications are among the most common health problems among newly arrived immigrants to a particular country. It was aimed to determine the effects of some socio-demographic and health characteristics on anemia in Syrian migrant women and to analyze the effect on the baby after birth.
