This morning before work I had a huge panic/anxiety attack. I started back after holidays last week and have been feeling (very mild) anxiety about returning for several weeks. Last week I had a really good week at work, but this morning I just freaked out!
Anyway, I've been to my GP and she's prescribed xanax for me (to take as rarely as possible - I'm hoping that once I actually get to work I'll feel ok). What I want to know is - does anxiety make your pregnancy 'high risk'? I'm worried, because I'm booked in to have our baby in a family birthing centre and they only take low-risk women. I have my next midwife appointment next week. Should I tell them that I have been feeling anxious and have been put on medication? I'm tempted not to mention it, because I don't want them to tell me that I have to have the baby in the normal ward. I'm completely confident that I'll be fine once I finish up work.
So what do you think? Tell them so that they can give me the best possible care but risk being told I can't have the baby in the birthing centre, or don't mention it?
