Feelings and emotions

Pregnancy will bring changes to your relationship, especially if this is your first baby. Some people cope with these changes easily, others find it harder.

It is not uncommon for couples to have arguments and disagreements during pregnancy, however much they're looking forward to having a baby. Some of these may be nothing to do with the pregnancy, but others may be caused by one of you feeling worried about the future and how you're going to cope. It is important to realise that during pregnancy there are understandable reasons for the odd difficulty between you, and good reasons for feeling closer and more loving.

If feeling down or being anxious is affecting your everyday life, please speak to your midwife or GP. You do not have to have a particular mental health problem to be offered help dealing with worrying thoughts or feelings.
