Not every pregnant woman only experiences happiness in the pregnancy. It already starts with the fact whether you really wanted to get pregnant or that the pregnancy was a bit of a surprise. But also if the pregnancy was planned and the baby is more than welcome, people can have negative feelings during pregnancy.
Future parents often ask themselves questions: ‘Is this really what I want? How am I going to manage everything? How will I get through the delivery? Will I be a good mother (father)?’
But also without a clear cause pregnant women can feel emotionally out of balance.
As an international or expat there is an extra factor involved; the fact that your are not in your own country, with your family and friends and your own customs.
It is important to know that a lot of women experience these feelings, even though not a lot of people talk about it. Discuss your feelings with us so that we can see together wether you need some extra support.
