All reviewed papers which had inclusion criteria were evaluated. Random effect model by meta-analysis method was used to combine the studies' results. Data was analyzed using Stata software (Version 11.1). PResults: In systematic review, 12 studies with sample volume of 7087 pregnant woman were entered to the meta-analysis. The prevalence of anemia in first, second, and third trimester of pregnancy was estimated 19.6 (CI: 95, 8.4-30.9), 10.1 (CI: 95, 3.7-16.4) and 16.1 (CI: 95, 10.2-22), respectively.
