Pregnancy Psychology

Psychological disorders during pregnancy

The arrival of a son, and expected the same, constitute one of the happiest life events for prospective parents. However, not always.

The mother's mental health, psychiatric and psychological history of women, stressful life events, the desirability of having a child are among the factors that may affect the happiness and welfare of prospective parents and in particular the women.

Thus, motherhood is not always a period that generates happiness, and that protects women from any psychological problem.

The possibility of having some kind of psychological problem in pregnancy is not at all exceptional. Previous psychological problems may occur or which may be difficult to be treated as adequate coping during pregnancy and can determine the proper functioning in the postpartum period.

Similarly, these symptoms may appear in high-risk pregnancies in prenatal diagnosis malformation, abortions, etc. Whereupon, it would be necessary to put in the hands of a specialist.
