The haemoglobin A2 level was measured in 217 pregnant and 137 non-pregnant patients. Twenty-eight patients were reinvestigated at least six weeks after delivery.
There was no significant difference in the mean haemoglobin A2 level in pregnancy (2·4 ± 0·8%) and the mean haemoglobin A2 level in the non-pregnant controls (2·3 ± 0·6%).
In all anaemic patients whose A2 level was raised in pregnancy the level remained elevated after delivery.
