The significant findings of the study revealed that the mean post-intervention Hb. level (10.57) of experimental group was higher than the mean post-intervention Hb. Level of control group (7.48) with mean difference of( 3.09) and standard deviation of (0.85) in post-intervention of experimental group and (0.71) in post-intervention of control group. The‘t’ value was computed and was found to be 3.1 which was higher  than the table value of 2.00 at df (58)and at 0.05 level of significance. Thus the results showed that IV iron sucrose was effective in increasing the Hb. level in experimental group.  The findings of the present study suggest that the administration of IV iron sucrose were effective in increasing the Hb. level in antenatal mothers with severe anaemia in pregnancy.
