Postnatal emotional balance in women with and without antenatal fear of childbirth.

Abstract

Women in the later stages of pregnancy were identified as 'suffering' or 'not suffering' from fear of childbirth by means of a special questionnaire. The two samples were interviewed two months after delivery. Women with antenatal fear of childbirth were found to run an increased risk of sustaining severe emotional imbalance postnatally with possible implications on their relationship to the child.
