Abstract

Of the 102 women approached, 101 (99%) completed the anxiety thermometer (AnxT). The women were aged between 22-44 years (mean age 34.5 years); about half were primigravida and half multigravida. Almost two-thirds rated their current anxiety as four or above out of a maximum of 10. The most frequently reported concern was health of baby, followed by fears and worries, tiredness, and sleep problems. The high participation rate suggests that the AnxT can be developed to screen anxiety and elicit perinatal and related concerns to facilitate consultation and appropriate triaging. The problem checklist was refined based on the current results.
