@dayinthelifeofmum “✨For all the pregnant mamas✨
Anxiety and depression in pregnancy is a real and serious issue that needs more exposure. I’m so happy that as a society we are speaking about mental health more openly but I still feel there is a lack of light on mental health in pregnancy.
It doesn’t matter if it’s not your first pregnancy the experience can still be daunting and leave you feeling confused, worried and overwhelmed.
I tried many times to have this baby and lost many babies along the way. My anxiety mainly stems for worrying about the health of bubba. Still now at 27 weeks I question myself when I purchase something for baby “what if it doesn’t work out” “what if something happens” this is my mind being anxious. It’s a horrible way to think but it’s how my brain works.
Speak to your drs and midwives about these feelings, ask for help when you need it and for goodness sake don’t feel ashamed or guilty of feeling this way.
I’ve been very quite in my captions for a while and it’s because honestly I didn’t know how to come out and say I felt this way or if I should even put it out there. I thought maybe it was best kept quiet.
But the reason I started this page in the first place was to shed light on issues I’m passionate about, share little bits of my life (good and bad) and hopefully help a few people along the way. You are entitled to feel how you feel. You are valid, and you are worthy of someone listening to you🖤”
