Anxiety disorder during pregnancy has an adverse effect on the fetal, Obst, and neonatal outcomes. There is controversy about the use of psychotropic during pregnancy. The effective, safest, and easy to administer, nonpharmacological intervention is the unmet need. Biofeedback therapy is an acceptable and effective therapy for anxiety symptoms during pregnancy. We report a case of a young pregnant presented with anxiety symptoms in the first trimester along with recurrent panic attacks. The patient was managed with Biofeedback therapy, without any prenatal or postnatal complication. Future studies are required to understand the efficacy and effectiveness of biofeedback therapy.
