The Oxford Pregnancy Study
Around 30% of women experience high levels of stress, anxiety and depression during pregnancy. However, research in this field is limited, so it is currently unknown exactly what effects prenatal stress/anxiety/depression may have on both mum and baby.
The aim of The Oxford Pregnancy Study is to investigate how levels of mood during pregnancy may affect the biology of both mum and baby and specifically, how it may change responses to mildly stressful stimuli.
In order to do this we are currently recruiting first time mums-to-be in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire to take part in this research study. We are recruiting pregnant women with all levels of prenatal mood, not specifically women with high levels of prenatal stress/anxiety/depression.
