Baby Blues

Helpful Things to do for the Baby Blues

Your emotional well being is just as important as your physical health throughout the course of your pregnancy and beyond. Remember to:

  • Talk to someone. Tell that person about your feelings.
  • Ask your family or friends for help with childcare, chores and errands.
  • Write down your emotions and feelings. This helps you to express your thoughts and frustrations.
  • Set goals each day and celebrate event he small accomplishments. There may be days when you accomplish less than expected, but do not get frustrated. Take one step at a time in the right direction.
  • Don’t expect to be a “supermom.” Be honest about how much you can do and do not feel guilty for what you cannot get done.
  • Take time for yourself when possible.
  • Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids.
  • Talk with your healthcare provider about how you feel. He or she may offer counseling and/or medications that can help.
