|Being pregnant involves a great deal of physical, hormonal and emotional changes. It might even be one of the most magical, confusing, scary, exciting, stressful and life-changing events in your life. Over the course of the next 40 weeks your baby will grow from a single cell to a tiny and beautiful human being. Not only will your body adapt to help your baby thrive, the changes you make during pregnancy to become a healthier, happier and more self-aware person will not only improve your emotional and physical state of being, but will also benefit your baby in the womb and after birth.|
Destressing or stress management during pregnancy is just as important as eating healthy foods and exercising moderately. You’ll not only feel better physically and emotionally, but you’ll be creating a safe and nurturing environment for your baby. Take note on your present diet, physical activity and stress levels and evaluate if you need to make a change. It’s never too late to start! Parenting begins when you find out you are pregnant. By taking care of yourself you are taking care of your child and giving them a healthy start in life.
How to manage stress during pregnancy:
• Get a goodnight’s sleep
If you try all tips above and still feel overwhelmed, don’t hesitate getting help. Talk with your doctor about seeing a psychologist, some sessions of therapy can do wonders.
