Enjoy Your Bump

Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to improve symptoms of mild-moderate anxiety and depression in pregnancy.

The Enjoy Your Bump study was designed for women experiencing mild-moderate symptoms of anxiety and depression during their pregnancy. The study used an online educational Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based life skills course called ‘Enjoy Your Bump’.

The CBT course aimed to improve feelings of depression and anxiety by encouraging and teaching more positive patterns of thinking. It recruited pregnant women in NHS Lothian with symptoms of anxiety and depression. The women then completed online questionnaire before and after the course, and were followed up at 6-12 weeks after childbirth to assess any effects of ‘Enjoy Your Bump’ on improving women’s mental health.
