Description

Welcome to On Health where today I talk about understanding stress during pregnancy, bust myths, and share real tips to take care of yourself before and when the stress hits the fan.

In this episode I explore: 

  • The impact of how we talk about stress in pregnancy and its effects on moms-to-be on
  • Why it's important to understand stress during pregnancy
  • The pressure to always feel happy when you're pregnant and the guilt unrealistic expectations cause pregnant women to feel
  • What stress really is, including the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ kinds
  • Why some stress is normal during pregnancy - and why you're not doing anything wrong
  • What studies say about stress and how it can affect your pregnancy and your baby
  • The most common causes of stress in pregnancy
  • Spotting stress signs and trying out stress-busters like meditation or yoga
  • The importance of sleep, staying active, eating well, and finding folks to talk to
  • How talking to your midwife, doctor, or a mental health pro can be a big help- and what they need to know, too
  • Why you’re taking care of you is taking care of your baby too

Thank you for listening to the On Health Podcast. And please remember to treat yourself with kindness and love through your pregnancy journey - and beyond, and share this with a mama who you think would appreciate hearing this today.
