Abstract objectives Anaemia is a potential long-term sequel of obstetric blood loss, but the increased risk of
anaemia in women who experience a haemorrhage compared to those who do not has not been
quantified. We sought to quantify this risk and explore the duration of increased risk for these women.
methods Systematic review of articles published between 1990 and 2009. Data were analysed by highand
low-income country groupings. Prevalence and incidence ratios, and mean haemoglobin levels were
results Eleven of 822 studies screened were included in the analysis. Most studies showed a higher
prevalence or incidence of anaemia in women who had experienced haemorrhage than in those who
did not, irrespective of the timing of measurement post-partum. In high-income countries, women who
had a haemorrhage were at 5.68 (95% CI 5.04–6.40) times higher risk of post-partum anaemia than
women who did not. In low-income countries, the prevalence of anaemia was 1.58 (95% CI 0.96–2.60)
times higher in women who had a haemorrhage than in women who did not, although this ratio was
greater when the study including mild anaemia in its definition of anaemia was excluded (1.93, 95% CI
1.42–2.62). Population-attributable fractions ranged from 14.9% to 39.6%. Several methodological
issues, such as definitions, exclusion criteria and timing of measurements, hindered the comparability of
study results.
conclusions Women who experience haemorrhage appear to be at increased risk of anaemia for
many months after delivery. This important finding could have serious implications for their health care
and management.
