If you’re considering pregnancy, you likely have questions and concerns about what to expect. If you don’t just yet, begin your exploration here. Our Early Pregnancy section has a comprehensive list of Common Questions and Concerns to help address some of your curiosities. For example, discomforts like nausea are common experiences during early pregnancy, but our resources can help you know what to expect and how to manage these symptoms to feel more at ease.
It’s also important to think about your mental health, particularly throughout a pregnancy journey. For example, if you have an existing mental health condition or are worried about your mental health during pregnancy, the Reproductive Mental Health Programs at BC Women’s Hospital or St. Paul’s Hospital can provide valuable support. The programs require referrals, but it’s worth being aware of the supports that may be available to you. This is a key topic to check in with your maternity provider about so that you know you’ve got resources and any needed expertise to support you on your journey, even if there are bumps along the way!
