Types of anxiety conditions in pregnancy

There are a number of different types of anxiety conditions, each of which has a different set, or cluster of symptoms.

Common anxiety disorders in the perinatal period

Recognising the range of symptoms and the type of anxiety condition it may be, can help you to learn more about the specific condition and effective treatments.
