Pregnant women stress

31st August 2007

Almost 90% of women felt stressed during their pregnancy, according to a new survey.

Johnson’s Baby and the baby charity Tommy’s surveyed 1,100 mums-to-be and found many were stressed because of the changes to their body, their relationship, giving up smoking, fears of developing post-natal depression and eating a healthy diet.

The findings have raised concerns among experts with significant levels of stress in pregnancy linked to negative health impacts on the unborn baby. They say pregnant women should have access to as much information as possible to take steps to reduce stress.
