In a mother's survey conducted last year, the majority of those surveyed showed signs of poor emotional well-being; experiencing anxiety and worry, anger and frustration, and guilt regularly.
About more than half (51.7%) of them rated themselves at a stress level of 7 or more out of 10 (with 10 being completely stressed).
