Pregnancy presents a multitude of opportunities for stress and anxiety.
Changes to the Mother’s body, family finances, and future growth weigh heavily on future parents or parents with children already.
Having a multitude of therapies to help support both parents during pregnancy is a powerful tool to add to your medical team.
Did you know that trauma, stress, and anxiety contribute to harming the developing fetus? The baby in the womb suffers DNA changes that may contribute to behavioral problems and other disorders in the child. What Mom experiences in her day is passed on to her baby, and it’s not an old wives tale!
The impact of stress also varies as a function of gestational period. Whereas the risk of developing schizophrenia later on in life is associated with acute stress during the first trimester, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is more common among children of expecting mothers who are exposed to stress during late pregnancy. The amount of stress experienced by the mother is also important because mild stress may be related to positive outcomes on children’s motor and cognitive development.
