Pregnancy-related Anxiety is not a widely recognised anxiety type but potentially may affect many pregnant women. Pregnancy-related Anxiety has been associated with many negative outcomes including preterm birth and physical defects in the child and increased nausea and substance abuse in mothers. Furthermore, it has been identified as a significant predictor of postnatal depression. These negative outcomes demonstrate the need for greater understanding.
