Pregnancy is a time of change. Your body is changing every day as it feeds your growing baby and gets ready to give birth. Your life style also will change as you take on new responsibilities. Like many women, you may see your relationships with your partner, family, and friends change as your needs and priorities shift.
Sometimes it can help just to know that your feelings and experiences are normal. It’s very common to worry about how you look and feel. You may be concerned about labor and delivery.
If you are a first-time parent, you will wonder how you will adjust to motherhood and care for your baby. You may also think about your partner’s reaction and commitment to being a parent.
If you are already a mother, you may worry about how a new baby will affect your growing family. Second-time mothers worry about how they will care for another child and meet the needs of the rest of their family.
