EMOTIONAL CHANGES

Hormonal changes in your body cause you to feel happy one minute then in tears the next. There are a lot of issues that tend to cause anxiety in pregnant women, such as the health of her baby, adjusting to being a mother, and the anticipation of labor pain. Most of your anxieties can be relieved by:

  • Asking medical questions and discussing your worries
  • If depression really gets you down, don’t hesitate to ask for help
  • The key to working through depression and anxiety is to talk
  • If you feel anxious, take a warm bath; keep thoughts on today’s events not tomorrow
  • Make a point to get out of the house everyday, even if for a short walk
  • Read books on pregnancy and child care
  • Mood swings are very common in pregnancy!
