Dear mom, it’s normal to feel anxious during pregnancy, especially as the big moment of delivery approaches! Fear of pain, the unknown, and bodily changes can overwhelm us.
In the past, childbirth took place at home, surrounded by family and with a midwife providing support and relaxing massages. Now, with hospitals and medical advancements, the environment may be more impersonal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great support team behind you.
Everyone reacts differently, but with the right emotional tools, you can face everything with the best attitude! Besides, a large support network is like emotional power, it makes you stronger!
Did you know that a study showed that if the hospital staff is kind to you, you feel satisfied with the care received, and they manage labor pain well, there is less likelihood of postpartum depression? So, the treatment during labor is key.
Talk to your doctor to clarify doubts and get to know the hospital better. And why not consider having a birth assistant or attending prenatal courses? They will provide you with the tools to cope with all of this!
Remember, your baby’s birth is a unique experience, so build your support team and trust that everything will go well!
