Abstract Iron Supplementation is generally recommended during pregnancy to meet the iron requirement of both mother and fetus. When detected early in pregnancy, iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is associated with an increase in the risk of preterm delivery. Deficiency of Vitamin C also causes poor iron absorption leading to IDA. This paper deploys non-parametric statistics to analyse and compare the hemoglobin level of pregnant women before and after consumption of Vitamin C and Sulfas Ferroses. The objective of this study is to compare the hemoglobin level of pregnant women before and after the IDA treatment and assess the association between maternal hemoglobin (Hb) level and pregnancy outcome. Johnson transformation is used to estimate the proportions of women with hemoglobin level out side the required specification limits before and after the treatment. Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test is deployed to compare the hemoglobin level before and after the treatment. The result indicates a significant difference in the hemoglobin level before and after the treatment.
