Can panic attacks cause a Miscarriage or stillbirth?

Hi, i am 20 weeks pregnant and have panic attack almost every day since i stopped my zoloft when i was 4 weeks pregnant. I just went to a DR tonight (not my regular Dr.) when i was having a panic attack and she said it's not good for your baby. I didn't question that at all, but now i wish i asked her what affects it has on the baby? Can this Harm my baby? Can it Kill the baby? Cause Miscarriage? Cause stillbirth? I am worrying more!
Thanks for your help.

hello.. panic attacks and anxiety would lead to  low birth weight and late gestational age and I don't think it would lead to serious things such as miscarriage or stillbirth.. Try meditation to calm down..Take care ..

Unless you hurt your bump ie fall it should be fine. you'd think they would have medication you could take in pregnancy. would councelling help for the anxiety? x

I don't think it can cause THAT much damage to the baby but I would consider yoga....You need to do something to get better with your panic attacks.. I know you already know that but I don't think it can KILL the baby..
