Moms worry—even before they become moms. They worry if what they eat or drink will affect their baby-to-be, they worry about exercising (and not exercising), dying their hair, the pain of childbirth, and more. But what do moms worry about most? The March of Dimes published the results of a recent survey and here's what it found.
The number-one worry of moms-to-be? Birth defects, said 78 percent of the pregnant women polled. Stress came in second, with moms wondering if their stress could harm their babies, and premature birth was the third biggest fear.
Also on the list:
The pain of childbirth
Not getting to the hospital on time
Not being able to breastfeed
Losing the pregnancy weight
Eating sushi and fish
