Fear of childbirth in primiparous Italian pregnant women: The role of anxiety, depression, and couple adjustment.

Results suggest the importance of differentiating low levels of fear from intense levels of fear in order to promote adequate support interventions. PMID: 28709777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIt is recommended to pay attention to the psychological burden of all obstetric patients as a routine to capture a psychosomatic treatment indication. A general bonding problem in women with threatened preterm birth was not found. Nevertheless, increased maternal stress, anxiety, and depressiveness levels during pregnancy may have a negative impact on the development of the fetus.

CONCLUSIONS: Pregnancy-specific anxiety was found to significantly increase the risk of PTB and LBW in a military population. Understanding this relationship is essential in developing effective assessments and interventions. Results emphasize the importance of prenatal maternal mental health to fetal health and birth outcomes. Further research is needed to determine the specific physiological pathways that link prenatal anxiety and depression with poor birth outcomes. PMID: 31808825 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatally initiated CBT did not improve maternal symptoms or child outcomes among non-help-seeking women with antenatal depression or anxiety. Our findings are not in line with present recommendations for universal screening and treatment for antenatal depression or anxiety, and future work may include the relevance of baseline help-seeking.

CONCLUSION: Disability to modulate GABA-A-r expression during pregnancy and restore its previous state after parturition appears to trigger PPD. The GABAergic system is a promising pharmacotherapy target. From preclinical to clinical studies for about twenty years the GABAergic system has been incriminated and targeted in this challenging mental disease.

CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that in women in Mexico City, particulate matter exposure during pregnancy is positively associated with PPD and symptoms of anhedonia and depression at 6 months postpartum. Future studies should examine mechanisms linking air pollution and other environmental exposures during pregnancy with postpartum psychological functioning.
