Pregnancy is an emotional time. As well as family life changing and added worries about your health, work and finances, your hormones are all over the place. This is further complicated by the fact that everyone seems to expect you to be leaping from twig to twig.
Indeed lots of women get the guilts about feeling low when they think they should be full of joy. This is nonsense and if anyone tells you to cheer up, remember that while pregnant you have diplomatic immunity to say a rude word to them.
If you’re feeling a bit anxious or generally down, take heart from the fact you’re not alone. Depression in pregnancy is far more common than most people think and help is at hand. Lots of hospitals have specialist teams and, if it’s not so severe, a good chat to your midwife, partner or a friend who has been through pregnancy herself might be all it takes to make you feel a bit better. Just don’t suffer alone.
