Low Blood during pregnancy

I have a friend who is pregnant and she is 28 years old. She consulted at the clinic and she was told that she does not have enough blood in her body.

My question is what are the risk of giving birth with that low blood, what can she do before giving birth.

I am not sure whether your friend has low blood pressure or is anaemic. You would have to find out more details. Anaemia can be treated with iron tablets. Low blood pressure is not a serious problem.
