Must rule out other causes of anaemia. eg thalassemia, sickle cell anaemia gastrointestinal bld  etc.
Iron inj should be given only after ruling out other causes. Also when she should avoid milk and milk products within 2 hrs of iron tablets. U can come and see me or any other gynaecologist dealing with high risk pregnancy.
