Does Stress Amp Anxiety During Pregnancy Harm Baby

HH - February 2

Hi Just wondering if anyone knows whether there is a link between being very stressed and anxious during pregnancy and having a small/unhealthy baby? I am 17 weeks pregnant and suffer from anxiety disorder, which I am trying to treat. I have read up quite a bit on the internet but there seems to be conflicting evidence. I'd appreciate any answers/advice. Thanks

I've read that high anxioty can cause ADD when the child is older...around 8 or 9. But nothing about this being the cause of a small/unhealthy baby. It's true that there is a lot of conflicting evidence out there. But as long as you try your best to stay calm, eat well, and do a daily walk your baby should be fine.
