Dealing With Anxiety and Panic Attacks While Pregnant

Slide 2: 

Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful things, but not when you are suffering from panic and anxiety attacks. Suffering from anxiety and panic attacks is actually quite common for a lot of pregnant women. It is a very exciting time for a mother-to-be, however at the same time, it can be a time of uncertainties and wondering about what is to come. Fear and worry can also creep into a lot of women's minds and spoil their journey and bonding with their unborn babies.

Slide 3: 

With all the excitement, worry and unanswered questions that come with most pregnancies, it is no surprise that some women can develop anxiety or panic attacks. This is also worsened by the fact that the body, as a result of the pregnancy is going through some sort of transformation, with the chemical, physical and hormonal changes. Do not despair though, the anxiety and panic attacks that seem to be creeping on you can be controlled, or the effects lessened.

Slide 4: 

So what can you do with all the anxiety and panic that creeps up as you think about life with the baby, the delivery, is your baby healthy, the financial implications of having a baby, is the baby's father going to support you and all the questions that are going through your mind?

Slide 5: 

As a mother to be, the first step would be to get some of your questions answered, that is what I did. Get some pregnancy books that will educate you about what your body is going through and what you can expect during this time. Talk to friends or siblings that have gone through this experience and if you can, you can even join a support group that is focused on supporting and educating other mother-to-be's.

Slide 6: 

There are also programs out there that can offer yoga or relaxation classes especially for pregnant women, and it could be worth your while to have a look at a program like that. In addition to that, exercise is extremely important for women who are pregnant, just make sure that it is something that does not put strain on your pregnancy or the baby, something that your doctor has signed off. It is a great way to relax and stay healthy.

Slide 7: 

Stay away from pills, I doubt your doctor will even recommend them at this point. The best way to deal with anxiety and panic attacks is by doing it naturally and safely. You will have a fearful thought now and again, you are human after all but replace those negative thoughts with positive ones. Be excited about your baby, this experience will only last a few months so enjoy it to the fullest. It is indeed a special time, an unforgettable time.
