Low-birth weight babies

FROM NBC: A new study finds women with depression and anxiety during pregnancy are more likely to deliver low birth weight babies. The study focused on women in rural Bangladesh. Researchers found almost one in every five women had clinical depression -- while one in four had anxiety during pregnancy. These women were much more likely to give birth to very small babies -- who were consequently at risk for various physical difficulties. Low birth weight is strongly associated with infant death.

I hate the hormonal shift of pregnancy - especially after the baby is born. It's like an out of body experience! I can totally see how women could become clinically depressed and anxious while pregnant. It's a stressful time for a lot of women!
