Project Details


Pregnancy is a physiological state of great vulnerability for women, in which physical and mental changes occur, which if they become pathological, can significantly alter the health of the mother and the baby. This period can be related to an increase in the possibility of developing psychiatric disorders such as anxiety. Maternal anxiety has been associated in multiple studies with adverse outcomes during pregnancy such as hypertensive disorders, particularly pre-eclampsia. Anxiety disorders represent chronic stress states that have been linked to alterations in cortisol levels. A systematic review on the subject is proposed as the initial phase of the project.
