EVALUATION OF PREVALENCE OF ANAEMIA IN PREGNANCY AMONG PREGNANT MOTHERS ATTENDING ANTENATAL CLINIC IN FOUR NURSING TRAINING HOSPITALS IN EBONYI STATE.

The prevalence of Anaemia in four Nursing training hospitals in Ebonyi State was evaluated using survey research design. The four hospitals used are Federal Medical Centre, (FMC) Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, University Teaching Hospital (BSUTH), Mile 4 Hospital Izzi and Presbyterian Hospital Uburu. A total of 1348 women were randomly selected from the antenatal clinics of the hospitals from January – December 2015. A checklist was used to collect the data from their antenatal records. The results show that the prevalence of anaemia in pregnancy was 56% which is an indication that anaemia is still a serious pregnancy problem in the area. The results also show that anaemia is high among mothers below 25 years of age, primigravida and during the second trimester. It is recommended that Nurses and Midwives should emphasis the preventive measures for anaemia during their booking visits with follow-up programme to prevent death and disability that result from anaemia in pregnancy.
