Nurses’s roles in caring for teenage pregnancy with iron deficiency anemia
Iron deficiency anemia in teenage pregnant women is a public health problem that tends to be increasing. If the problem is not resolved, it may affect on both mothers and fetal health, as well as society. Causes of iron deficiency anemia during adolescent pregnancy are: the body needs more iron during pregnancy, chronic blood loss, and insufficient iron intake and little absorption, as well as inappropriate behaviors, such as late or incomplete antenatal care, improper food intake behavior, or not taking iron supplements, etc. Nurse’s roles in taking care of teenage pregnant women with iron deficiency anemia consist of stimulating teenage pregnant women to attend the antenatal service quickly, providing health education for teenage pregnant women and their families, continuous assessment of anemia, and transferring information regarding teenage pregnant women with iron deficiency anemia to their families and network partners in the community in order to ewceive continual care.
