A study that assessed stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms in pregnant women from seven Western countries during the first major wave of the COVID-19 pandemic (April 17 to May 31, 2020) shows that stress from fears about COVID-19 led to anxiety and depressive symptoms above normal levels. Led by Stony Brook University Professor Marci Lobel, Ph.D., the findings are part of the International COVID-19 Pregnancy Experiences (I-COPE) Study and are published in Social Science & Medicine.
