Objectives: To know the incidence of anemia in admitted women of third trimester pregnancy. Methods: We prospectively analyzed the Hemoglobin status of pregnant women, in their third trimester, hospitalized for labour at MIMSR Medical College and YC rural hospital, Latur. Estimation of hemoglobin of pregnant women was done by automated cell counter. Results: Total 230 antenatal cases were included in study. Of which, 54 women were found to be anemic (<10gm%). Incidence of anemia (Hb < 10 gm%) is 23.48%. Incidence of severe anemia (Hb < 6 gm%) is 4.34%, moderate anemia (Hb 6-7.9 gm%) is 3.91% and mild anemia (Hb 8 - 10 gm%) is 19.13%. Conclusion: The incidence of anemia in pregnant women from this hospital admission is just 23.48%, which is quite lower than other Indian reports.
