Pregnant Women & New Mums with Eating Disorders

Published fredag 9 november 2007 kl 10.16

The number of pregnant women and new mothers suffering from eating disorders is on the rise here in Sweden. 

Newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that it’s a problem midwives and child health care centres are ill equipped to deal with. 

A new project is underway to map out the extent of the problem and to find new treatment methods.  In charge of a support group, Anita Hägglund says women experience extreme frustration and anxiety with their growing bodies with some even feeling grotesque.

The newspaper reports that women most at risk are those who have suffered from eating disorders in the past.
