Abstract


In this paper we examined the micro –nutrient status of pregnant women and its nutritional and psychological implications. Using rural women, we found that their micro nutrient status was low in the first and third trimesters: the nutritional and psychological implications ranging from high mortality and morbidity rate of pregnant women and infants, low birth weight to impaired cognitive and behavioral conditions were discussed.
