Tóm tắt

Many risk factors impact pregnant women's physical and emotional health. In addition, the rise of the COVID-19 epidemic brings with it a slew of unfavourable elements that continue to affect the health conditions of pregnant women, particularly frequent mental problems. This study was conducted to describe mental disorders in pregnant women during the COVID-19 pandemic and associated factors. The majority of 30 included articles were cross-sectional studies and one out of three were conducted in Asia. The review found that stress, anxiety and depression among pregnant women were significantly higher during the pandemic. Due to reduced exercise time, lack of social support, and limited communication due to social distancing. The higher number of women experiencing violence during the COVID-19 era is also a direct cause of the increased prevalence of common mental disorders. To improve this situation, it is necessary to have timely support from society, improve and continue antenatal care services, as well as provide adequate COVID-19-related information and its impact on the fetus.
