Your emotional well being is just as important as your physical health throughout the course of your pregnancy and beyond.

  • Talk to someone. Tell that person about your feelings.
  • Ask your family or friends for help with childcare, chores and errands.
  • Write down your emotions and feelings. This helps you to express your thoughts and frustrations.
  • Set goals each day and celebrate event he small accomplishments. There may be days when you accomplish less than expected, but do not get frustrated. Take one step at a time in the right direction.
  • Don’t expect to be a “supermom.” Be honest about how much you can do and do not feel guilty for what you cannot get done.
  • Take time for yourself when possible.
  • Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids.
  • Talk with your healthcare provider about how you feel. He or she may offer counseling and/or medications that can help.
