I've got a student who is doing a science research project who asked
me this question:

"Are these the same?
65% of infants of diabetic mothers have perinatal iron deficiency"

65% of mothers with gestational diabetes have perinatally iron deficient babies.

There is a 65% chance that the baby of a diabetic mother will be iron

I'd like some feedback from you all.
