Pregnancy is a rollercoaster of an adventure. Everyone knows about the physical changes that you go through during the course of a pregnancy, but the scariest changes are the emotional one. Before you get pregnant, you’re often carefree. You own the world and you’re selfish with it – and rightly so when the only person that you have to please is yourself. When you get pregnant, you have to start thinking of more than just you; there’s a little life depending on you to be healthy, present and feeling happy. The physical changes can affect your mental health. The life changes and responsibility can also affect your mental health. You have to understand how a pregnancy can alter your thinking, and then you have to surround yourself with people to keep you feeling supported and happy during that pregnancy.
