The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of extract of Moringa leaves extract to reduce the incidence of anemia by measuring hemoglobin level (Hb), upper arm circumference (UAC) and body weight (BW) on post-disaster pregnant women. It also aimed to determine the effect of moringa leaves extract on Hb level, UAC and BW of pregnant women.


This research used a quasi experiment with a randomized controlled double blind design. A sample of 40 pregnant women were divided into two groups, namely the intervention group of 20 people and the control group of 20 people. The intervention group was given capsules of Moringa leaf extract and iron capsules every day. The control group was only given iron capsules.


The characteristics of respondents in the two groups before intervention and put it before were not different. To show there is a difference after the intervention, the Hb level of pregnant women in the intervention group significantly increased compared to the control group (p=0.000). Similarly the UAC and BW are higher in intervention group than that in control (p=0.033). This means that the data were significantly different (p=0.040).


The conclusion was that moringa leaf extract has an effect on increasing HB level, UAC and BW of post-disaster pregnant women in the area of Tinggede Health Center, Sigi District. Moringa leaf extract is suggested as an alternative supplement to overcome anemia on post-disaster pregnant women.
