Q:

A friend of mine told iron tablets if taken in pregnancy makes the colour of the baby dark? is it Tru? i am worried coz doctor has prescribed me two tablets 4th o be taken everyday.



Sanha

No. The colour of your baby's skin is determined by his genes and not by the food you eat. Iron is vital for making haemoglobin in your blood which carries oxygen around the body. hence pls follow what ur doctor says

Madhura Jauhari

no.. do as prescribed by your doctor.. do take these tablets without missing..

Munira lakdawala

ya dont ever miss ur iron tablets by mistake also...you have to be very regular in that

Priya

Not at all dear. Iron will make you and baby strong

Subha

no. complexion of the baby entirely depends on genes of parents

Sonali Shivlani

No this is a complete myth. Please do not listen to such mis information. Iron can make your stools dark but surely not the baby. Iron is an essential nutrient in the growth and development of the baby and lack of the same can cause an under weight baby and development issues.

Sweta Nagubandi

Absolutely wrong! No medication is related to the colour of the baby! Pls take the medicines on time as prescribed by ur doctor.
