Considerable attention is paid to the treatment and clinical outcomes of `atrisk pregnancies but the level of worry experienced by these women has not been addressed. A multidisciplinary team, known as the Risk Associated Pregnancy (RAP) team, cared for 159 women with risk-associated pregnancies. Their level of worry was compared with that of 699 women with normal pregnancies (NPs): 360 receiving continuity of midwifery care and 339 receiving standard care. Underlying level of anxiety was similar among groups. Women managed by the RAP team reported a lower level of worry than women in either of the NP groups.
