One of the most vulnerable groups during the coronavirus-19 outbreak is pregnant women. Pregnant women are more prone to anxiety because they see about vertical spread to the fetus. Disturbance during mental health is a common morbidity of pregnancy, about 12% of women experience depression and up to 22% experience high levels of anxiety in late pregnancy. Another study related to anxiety and depression during the pandemic in Turkey in 2019 stated that the Covid-19 outbreak negatively affected the mental health of pregnant women which in turn could harm pregnant women. Problems during pregnancy can be overcome by using non-pharmacological therapy. One of the non-pharmacological techniques is Guided Imagery. Guided imagery or guided imagination technique is the development of mental functions that are expressed dynamically through psychophysiological processes involving all senses and leading to changes in behavior, perception, or physiological responses with someone's guidance or through the media.
