iron supplements?? Lock Rss

i am taking a folate and iron tablet in 1 n i just saw on the news update, that there is some debate as whether iron supplements are bad during pregnancy. any thoughts??
I saw that last night also. During pregnancy my iron levels plummet big time. So my ears pricked up when I heard the story on TV.

I'd rather take the iron supplements than becoming anaemic and suffering from fainting, dizzy spells and nose bleeds as well as having an anaemic baby. I think these are more trouble.

The concerns were that taking iron supplements may lead to a slightly overactive child. There were no difference in their health or learning abilities.
