Background and Aim: Preeclampsia is a serious complication of pregnancy that occurs in about 5 to 14 percent of pregnancies. The disease is an important cause of maternal mortality which causes maternal fetal complications. Considering the high prevalence of preeclampsia and the complications of the disease for families, it is necessary to review the studies conducted in this regard. This study aimed to determine the relationship between hemoglobin and hematocrit level in the pregnant women in 2012.

Methods: This study was a case-control study conducted on 180 pregnant women attending clinics for high-risk mothers and health care centers in Sanandaj city. Sampling was conducted based on objective data collection. Data collection tools were questionnaire and patients’ medical records which were completed by interviews with mothers and referring to medical records. Then using Chi-square and Fisher tests the data were analyzed.

Findings: The data showed a significant relationship between preeclampsia and womenchr('39')s level of education (p=0.000). However, there was no relationship between the number of children of the studied women and job (p=0.05). In addition, no significant relationship (p> 0.05) was seen between   suffering from preeclampsia and the number of pregnancy and delivery. Average hemoglobin and hematocrit levels in women with preeclampsia and healthy women were about 13 and 38 which were not statistically different ( p<0.19  p<0.09).

Conclusion: The results showed that the amount of hemoglobin and hematocrit of participated women in this study were somewhat low which has no significant relationship with suffering from preeclampsia.  Since the etiology of preeclampsia is still unknown, further studies are still required in this regard so that by early detection and prevention from disease progression, unpleasant complications in mothers and their infant would be reduced.
