I found this article about depression and anxiety in mothers of children with heart defects.

Interesting study and very believeable. I found it funny that it was done in Norway since I am Norwegian myself. :)

I can understand that. Knowing Leo needs a valvuloplasty right after birth has me stressed and all the doc appointments I've needed to attend before he's even born have taken their toll on me. I can imagine if he needs to see alot of docs even after the procedure I'll still be a little on edge. Sitting in doctor's offices all the time is stressful.
