Pregnancy is a period of happiness and hope, but it could also be a period of concern and emotional distress of the biological, behavioral, and psychological changes occurring during gestation. Although mental health problems are widespread psychological conditions in childbearing, recent research suggests that anxiousness is far more frequent than sadness. Perinatal anxiety is viewed as a negative mental situation that is associated to fears about "one's newborn's health with well being, approaching labour, healthcare and health-care experience (including one's own development and wellbeing during pregnancy) throughout pregnancy, and motherhood or parental role." It is considered to be distinctive from basic anxiety and depression indices in non-pregnant women.
