Stress and anxiety during pregnancy

At any stage of your pregnancy, you may experience a range of mixed emotions. Joy and excitement about meeting your new baby and becoming a mother may be mixed with some feelings of anxiety and fear about the birth and motherhood. It is important to talk to your partner or a close friend and your caregiver about your feelings. Discussing your

preferences and writing a birthing plan can help reduce worry or anxiety. Ask your caregiver about their practices and philosophies. Arrange to go on a tour of the maternity unit where you intend to give birth and attend pre-natal classes These actions can all help to calm any fears you may have. The third trimester is a time of great change and as in all such times our emotional state is very vunerable. To help prevent feeling overly anxious it is vital to rest, eat well and do regular, gentle exercise, this could be a gentle yoga class for pregnant women, hypnobirthing techniques,or anything you enjoy doing.
