It can be easy to feel left out of all the hoopla, why with people constantly talking about and asking about your baby – what about mom and her needs?
Here are three ways that you can feel more confident in yourself as a woman, a life-giving force, and as a mama-to-be when it comes to your pregnancy.
Join Other Mamas
While some of us like nothing better than to revel in our own solitude, some of us mamas do better when we’re amongst others like ourselves.
If this sounds like you, then seek out pregnant mamas around you and pick a meeting time and spot to talk about each other’s pregnancies, compare belly sizes, and whatever else makes you laugh and appreciate life.
Some other considerations for you are to take a prenatal yoga class, a parenting class, and even a breastfeeding workshop.
Any of these options will put you in touch with other mamas-to-be, all of whom have the potential to turn into lifelong friendships.
Focus On The Bigger Picture
On those days where you feel down and out, remember what your end result will be.
A happy, healthy baby born into a family of love, stability, and compassion.
Perhaps this pregnancy has been hard on your body or your doctor has put you on bed rest, whatever the case may be never forget that you are creating a human being.
There’s no one cooler than you, mama!
Ask And You Shall Receive
Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it throughout your pregnancy.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed with everything, overtired, stressed, anxious – whatever it is, ask for help sooner rather than later.
Anyone from your family, your friends, or your doctor is there to help you and your baby in the best way that they know how.
Use their kindness, their guidance, and their wisdom to lift your spirits higher, create a positive mental attitude, and absorb their positive energy throughout your psyche so that you are awakened and grounded throughout your pregnancy.
