What is perinatal anxiety?

According to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, one in five women will develop a mental illness during the perinatal period, so that's while you're pregnant or in the year after birth. But were you aware of perinatal anxiety? We hear from two women in Edinburgh, who suffer from the condition and about the impact it's had on their lives. Jenni talks to Sarah Wheatley a counsellor and therapist about what can be done to help.
