Pregnant & Emotional? You're Not Alone.

Due to fluctuating hormones and rapid physical changes, it is not unusual for women to experience mood swings during pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a normal, healthy state of being that women should embrace and enjoy. Every now and then, this happiness is overcome with concerns of becoming a new mom or concerns of adding another child to your family.

It’s common to experience:

  • Anxiety
  • Sadness
  • Feelings of doubt
  • Concern about your unborn child.

Sleep patterns are disrupted causing many women to become more emotional or cry easily.

Open communication with your spouse, partner, family or friends is most important. Sharing your feelings or concerns allows those closest to you to understand your actions and offer help, or reassurance.

Take time for yourself throughout your busy life.

  • Stay active.
  • Walk daily.
  • Maintain a healthy diet.

If everyday life is affected due to any of the following, please speak to your provider:

  • Sadness
  • Inability to get out of bed
  • Poor appetite
  • Excessive crying.

Our office visits are a judgment free zone, and we are always willing to listen, offer suggestions, and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
