The Mother’s Wellbeing

 

 

It is well known that the mother should look after herself during pregnancy, and that she should eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, not drink alcohol, and refrain from smoking

 

It is not so well known that the mother’s emotional state is important too.

 

The mother’s stress during pregnancy can have a long lasting effect on her child.

 

Although, it is important to remember that the majority of children will not be affected.

 

It is also very important that the mother does not blame herself, or that others blame her, if there are problems with her child

 

However, we all need to give more support to pregnant women and help to reduce their stress.
