Through hemoglobin determinations made in various stages of pregnancy, in 701 pregnant women with no iron supplementation ad hoc chosen out of a number of 7050 in the period from 1947 to 1969, a curve was constructed with the average rate of hemoglobin, which gave evidence of a drop that reaches its maximum around the 7th month of pregnancy and rises from that moment on. From this a working graph was built up and then it was discussed its importance in the diagnostic and treatment in anemia in pregnancy.
