Nutritional anemia during pregnancy is the result of poor diet and low iron content. Which is a high risk factor for maternal and child health. The present study determined the prevalence of maternal nutritional anemia in Solomon' s Klein and Sarcobamba health centers in the period January 2010 to January 2011 .This is a retrospective descriptive cross study, where we used as variables hemoglobin and degree of anemia. We reviewed 98 Pre Natal Clinic Histories in Sarcobamba center, 137 Pre natl clinic Histories in Solomon's Klein center of pregnant women attending the three controls and a hematologic test performed. Prevalence of nutritional anemia in pregnant women was 40.8%, the levels of anemia were 65.3% with mild anemia, 28.7% moderate anemia and 5.9% severe anemia. Therefore it is concluded that nutritional anemia in pregnancy still have a high prevalence in first-class facilities and remains one of the maternal and child health challenges to be overcome in prenatal care with timely and effective treatment.
