Pregnancy can be an exciting and special journey but can also come with many questions, concerns, and changes. It’s important to remember that mental health is just as important as physical health during this time. Many communities also have specific cultural practices or traditions related to mental health that can provide meaningful emotional and spiritual support. If you feel connected to a particular cultural or faith community, how might you include these elements along your journey? Consider reaching out to your community’s leaders for guidance, support or ceremony. After all, this is such a unique time in your life! Remember, taking care of your whole self – body, mind and spirit – is vital to a healthy you and to a healthy pregnancy! Your maternity provider has the expertise to help assess and support your mental health. As we help create safer spaces to discuss mental health openly, we hope you find these resources add value to your journey.
