You are pregnant – now what?
You find a provider(s), progress through your pregnancy, then ‘pop’ a baby comes out, right? You have a well-developed birth plan and everything goes smoothly. Magic!
Listening to your Emotions
A well-developed birth plan is a great way to assist along your pregnancy journey, but what if it doesn’t go smoothly and a massive wrench gets thrown into your plans? For many women pregnancy is a powerful, beautiful experience, but what if you feel that isn’t you? Or you feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, and numerous other self-conscious, negative feelings coming up during your pregnancy.
There are trained, qualified individuals who can help you process emotions and changes during your pregnancy and into motherhood. Additionally, they can assist if your partner(s) are working through new changes with pregnancy too.
