Perinatal Anxiety

Even during pregnancy anxiety and depression can impact expectant mothers. This is known as Perinatal Anxiety and can include panic attacks, compulsive behavior, habits of thinking and behaving that form a vicious cycle. While the condition is relatively common — even more common than Postpartum Depression — many women avoid treatment, which is not the best thing for mom, baby, and the family. There may be a way to help. A new study at UNC is tracking the success of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) to help parents suffering from Perinatal Anxiety.
