Pregnancy is a time when you want to enjoy bringing new life into the world. But unfortunately that is not for every expectant parent. About 20 percent of pregnant women have to deal with panic attacks, different types of phobias, social anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or even postnatal psychosis. And a difficult social situation or abuse of alcohol and drugs can also make pregnancy considerably more difficult. Not only for the mother, but also for the child. The risk of childbirth complications is greater and the interaction between mother and child can be disrupted.
