The number of pregnant women who suffer from anxiety and depression during pregnancy ranges from 20 to 40% [1]. It is more common for women to suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, especially during pregnancy as stated by, The Journal of Mental Health and Clinical Psychology [1]. A growing number of women in the U.S. are either suffering from psychiatric illnesses preexisting during pregnancy or are diagnosed with them during pregnancy [1]. There are several causes of worry during pregnancy, including: infant wellbeing, maternal illness, financial and social support, and mortality [1].
