The researchers also found that the women who experienced a decline in their levels of hemoglobin during pregnancy were about twice as likely to die from heart disease later in life, compared with the pregnant women who did not experience the decline.

The researchers said that the level of hemoglobin in the blood is a measure of how well red blood cells can carry oxygen throughout the body.
