Psychological Preparedness

Whether expecting or just considering parenthood, questioning if you are “cut out” to be a parent is something everyone goes through.  Also, one’s emotional well-being throughout the pregnancy plays a huge part in the outcome of a birth and the postpartum period.  It’s important for all expecting parents to recognize:
   
  • There are some risk factors for expecting moms and dads. Some of these include anxiety, depression, marital conflict and postpartum depression
  • You cannot control everything. Giving birth does not come with a predefined date or outcome; being prepared for a process you can’t control is important
  • Your emotional health is important. Taking time for yourself goes a long way in being your best and happiest mother or father.

You are in good company. Many parents struggle with the anticipation of having children and some with the pressure of raising a child. If you have any questions or concerns about your psychologically preparedness for parenthood, please book a free consultation with a KGA counselor today to assist you in your preparation.
