Pregnant and Suicidal?

May 18, 2008
In contemporary Western societies pregnancy is considered wonderful, and all women are thought to be delightfully happy and gratified with their dreams of motherhood ultimately being realised. Nevertheless, while this picturesque spectacle exists, the reality remains that, regardless of how adept and supported the woman is, the process is draining and exceedingly stressful. Considering this, it is hardly astonishing that it can lead the most proud-to-be mums into bouts of depression.

As a woman, to have your body transformed beyond her control is understandably testing. While Hollywood mums may maintain that they have never felt more beautiful, it is harder for us mere mortals to come to terms with the transformation in life not to mention the waiste line. Personal image may look vain, but persists in being a enormous factor in a positive and healthy out look in life. For countless woman this is a huge obstacle, even without the buddle of baby lump stretching your top. Loss of control of your body can feel like a loss of control over life and the important relationships in it. While all these emotional states are valid and for some become a far-off memory, for others an on going hardship which demand attention.

To be assured and proud of your new body is superb, particularly as the weight gain is an inescapable part of pregnancy. Of course, on the contrary, women commonly feel embarrassed by the way they look, not being able to fit in to that fabulous black top anymore is more distressing than you would suppose! But to combat some of these complications many woman have suggested simple steps to deal with these problems like shopping. It sounds like a dreadful cliche, but to buy fitting and fashionable clothes when you have been living in stretch pants can do wonders for your self esteem. There is a speedily growing need for prenatal clothing which looks great and is practical (that's one thing we can thank Hollywood mums for) and requires to little sweat to track down one at your local shops.

Other external remedies that have been suggested is a new make-up or make-over in a store or an appointment at the nice hair dresser round the corner. This continuation of participating in activities which were encouraging before pregnancy can help maintain the new mum feeling isolated from her past life but rather ease into a new stage.

A partner's, family and friends support is very important, however even with all that it merely can initiate a sense of confusion. "I have a wonderful husband and he is so excited about the baby, but I am not," she is also not alone. If talking with friends and trying positive activities is still not making a difference than extra help should be sort. If a local counsellor, or a support group for pregnant woman enabling the woman to converse over physical and psychological problems with woman going through the same changes. Even exercise classes such as yoga and aqua aerobics exclusively catering for pregnant woman which provide a social level of normality and relatable woman. Local G.P.s should be able to provide many of these contacts.
