Pregnancy is a transitional period that can lead to many unknowns and concerns. The hormonal changes a mother goes through can also make emotional difficulties harder to cope with, causing some women to become increasingly anxious. While a certain level of anxiety can be beneficial by encouraging the expecting mother to avoid behaviors that put their baby at risk, as well as signal an increased sense of responsibility, too much anxiety can affect your mood and relationship with loved ones. Learn to step back and be aware of your feelings - some mothers manage their anxiety by journaling, meditating or confiding in someone they trust.
