Your blood vol­ume in­creases by 50 per cent when you’re preg­nant, which can lead to low iron lev­els. This means you’ll run short of the red blood cells that carry oxy­gen around your body, lead­ing to tired­ness and the pos­si­bil­ity of anaemia, so if you are feel­ing run-down, see your GP. It’s a good idea to boost your iron lev­els from the start. If you’re not keen on tablets, a liq­uid iron sup­ple­ment is gen­tle on your stom­ach and eas­ily ab­sorbed.
