Pregnant… what now?
For many women discovering that they are pregnant is the most beautiful news they have ever received. The fulfilment of a wish they have carried around since childhood. For some women this news comes after trying for a long time even perhaps after having given up hope, the answer to many prayers. For other women though, it can be a time of disbelief, deep shock, anxiety, shame, guilt or even unacceptance.
Whatever your feelings are about the news of becoming pregnant, it is important that you feel supported with the myriad of feelings that may arise at this time.
While there are a plethora of books on the market about pregnancy and what to expect, every woman, with her unique set of wishes, life circumstances, beliefs, upbringing and mindset, approaches the discovery that she is pregnant in different ways.
Amongst a tidal wave of hormones and early signs of being pregnant, are all the emotions and questions that spring to mind when we start realising the enormity of this miracle already rapidly advancing within our wombs. In some cases it may not be wished for or the thought of caring for a child may seem completely foreign or even impossible.
It is not uncommon to feel extremes of contrasting feelings, perhaps excitement about becoming a mother as well as insecurity about whether the pregnancy will advance healthily and positively. Perhaps the news means having to completely alter your lifestyle choices and even friendships.
At Mandalia Birth we offer coaching and support for this monumental time of your life.
