3. It isn’t rare for expecting moms to ask themselves, “Will I love my baby enough?” and “Will I know what to do when my baby cries or gets sick?” The answer is yes, or it will be after a little experience. But, when you enter a job you’ve never held before with no guide book, it can be very intimidating (especially for those expectant moms who have issues with their own mothers).
4. Other issues that creep up include finances and daycare. Most mothers take a maternity leave from work after their babies are born, but finding right daycare where baby will be happy and Mom will feel reassured in leaving her little one can be a challenge. 5. There is also issue of what will happen at work while a woman is on maternity leave. Will she lose esteem and respect of others for putting family first? Or will her someone else snatch her spot as team leader while she is out on leave?
Of course, these issues are just a synopsis of concerns and worries pregnant women face. Naturally, every woman has her own specific circumstances that make some of these concerns less important, while others are more so. There are also concerns each woman has that are unique to her.
But relative to all expecting moms is that they face a number of worries and potential stressors. In extreme situations, these stressors lead into depression. Women feeling overwhelming and/or debilitating feelings of sadness or hopelessness should consult an OBGYN or counselor ASAP.
