Faculty mentor: Michelle Debbink

Transfusion is a common cause of severe maternal morbidity(SMM) and often associated with postpartum hemorrhage. Women with anemia more so iron deficiency(IDA )are more likely to receive transfusions, but it is unknown whether prenatal treatment improves maternal outcomes. We hypothesize, undertreated IDA increases risk of transfusion-related SMM compared to treated IDA, access to prenatal care may drive this relationship. Our research will determine if treating anemia reduces transfusion risk.
