This randomised controlled trial, investigated women's worries in late pregnancy as a secondary outcome depending on their attendance in an antenatal education programme. We found that women attending the education programme reported a lower level of worry in late pregnancy, especially worries related to birth issues, compared to those who did not attend the antenatal education programme.

Clin Perinatol 2011 Sep;38(3):351-84

Departments of Psychiatry & Human Behavior, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Epidemiology, University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, 3177 Gillespie Neuroscience Research Facility, Irvine, CA 92697, USA.

The effects of maternal stress on risk of preterm birth may vary as a function of context. This article focuses on select key issues and questions highlighting the need to develop a better understanding of which particular subgroups of pregnant women may be especially vulnerable to the potentially detrimental effects of maternal stress, and under what circumstances and at which stages of gestation.

Elective cesarean birth: issues and ethics of an informed decision.

J Midwifery Womens Health 2004 Sep-Oct;49(5):421-9

University of Illinois, USA.

Is elective cesarean birth an issue of a woman's autonomy to choose her mode of birth or fear of labor by both the patient and the providers? Are women consenting to this procedure truly informed about the short-term and long-term risks associated with cesarean birth versus vaginal birth? This article examines the issues associated with elective cesarean birth and the factors that have led to recent consideration of this option. It is essential that we evaluate how risks, benefits, and liability issues impact the recommendations for the mode of birth. The ethics of making an informed choice as well as ethical professional responsibilities are explored. Read More

Variations from these general population patterns have been reported for several psychiatric conditions and used as the basis for aetiological hypotheses. In this paper, the evidence for alterations in the expected seasonal fluctuation in birth dates of autistic people is evaluated. Read More
