Women Mental Health and Illness In times of Covid-19

The current global pandemic and the novel social situations like lockdown, isolation and quarantine have hit women badly with affecting their mental health even worse. Though the initial reports were not in favour of any vertical transmission of COVID-19 from the mother to the Infant during pregnancy, the recent researches say the contrary. i.e. Pregnant women infected by the viruses are found to develop severe forms of the disease, with increased risk of preterm deliveries, abortions and perinatal and maternal mortality. Also, women are more likely to lose job or financial independence when resources are limited; more likely to lose their school or education as a whole when more support needed in family, or education is only technology based

Some of the other reasons of women mental health issues could be following:

  • Multiple roles of women in life and family
  • Increased home stay of whole family putting extra burden of care on the women in house
  • For poor families, the less resource and limited support always hit the women first and worst as well
  • Loss of jobs
  • Women as a health care worker during COVID 19
  • Work from home is stress for a working women while with the whole family
  • Domestic violence during covid-19 has also increased during this period and that hit hardly to women
  • Childbirth care stress
