Whilst there is substantial, if inconclusive, literature on the association between psychosocial factors and birth outcomes, the relationship between persistent stressful aspects of daily life and birth outcomes has not been studied.
This paper reports on the association of preterm birth and low birthweight with the psychosocial stress of the household role.
Three hundred and ninety three women who had completed one successful pregnancy (para 1) who booked for antenatal care in a single Glasgow hospital completed questionnaires at 20 and 30 weeks gestation and measures of perceived difficulties with the household role and of the frequency of negative feelings about participation in the role were obtained.
