Having read a learning zone article, Yvonne Potter now feels better able to offer patients pre-pregnancy advice. I was interested to read the learning zone article on iron deficiency anaemia because it enhanced my understanding of the subject and increased my ability to advise women during my work as a nurse in a centre for sexual health.

I also knew that women of childbearing age are especially susceptible to iron deficiency because of blood loss during menstruation and the nutritional demands of pregnancy.
