    Normal range for non-pregnant women is 11.5-16.5 g/dL or 115-165 g/L. They seem to have changed it recently - goodness knows why, I don't understand what's wrong with using g/dL! Low levels during pregnancy are those <11.0 g/dL or 110 g/L, so at 107 yours are slightly low.

    Spinach and raisins are a good source of iron.
