Study: Increased suicidal tendencies among women in pregnancy
"Suicide is a contributing factor to maternal mortality along with bleeding and hypertension, "There is no doubt that pregnancy is the time when mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts emerge."

Recent research suggests that pregnant women may be exposed to mental illness due to shifts in hormone levels. "Pregnancy is expected to be a happy time, but in fact it is not."

In the study, Canadian researchers tracked pregnant women in Ontario between 1994 and 2008. They found that 5 percent of deaths during pregnancy or in the first year after pregnancy were due to suicide, and women used particularly lethal methods to kill themselves, such as hanging Or jump.

The researchers point out that the research points to the importance of monitoring mental health in women during and after pregnancy, especially when women suffer from postpartum depression.Study: Increased suicidal tendencies among women in pregnancy
