Stress During Pregnancy: Safe or Not?
There are some evidence suggesting that stress during pregnancy can cause lower birth-weight babies and children developing behavioral problems.
On the flip side contrary views suggest that since the human productive system appears to be remarkably resilient in its ability to endure the vagaries of human emotions, no amount of stress can harm the fetus.
In general premature births and low birth weight because of stress effects is extremely minimal in incidence, if at all. Since there is no conclusive evidence indicating possible harm to the baby, you still need to manage stress during pregnancy for your own well being.
