Baby on Board: How to Mentally Prepare for Pregnancy

Having a baby is a life changing experience, but one that you need to be prepared for. Here's how. 

Understand and Prepare for Delivery

Although your body was made to deliver a baby, there are still plenty of things to think about. You may want to consider a natural delivery, see a midwife instead of a doctor, or have loved ones in the room with you. It’s difficult not be anxious when you go into labor, but being well-informed and ready for different scenarios will help calm your nerves.

Know Your Lifestyle Will Change

It's pretty obvious that your life is changing, but many people don’t consider the fact that their lifestyle will change as well. You and your partner can no longer go see a movie at the last second, and a trip to the grocery store now involves a diaper bag, a car seat, and the baby. The sooner you accept that your lifestyle will change, the more you will be prepared for the child. An online psychic reading can help you prepare for this lifestyle change, and to help you accept that things will be much different between your family, your personal life, and your home after the baby is born.

Don’t Compare Yourself to Other Moms

One of the worst things new parents can do is compare themselves to other parents. Other parents will love to give you advice and share their experiences, but don’t use other couples as the benchmarks. Some moms are able to breast feed with little trouble, while other moms have a lot of trouble, and find that it’s not worth it. As long as your doctor believes that your child is healthy and normal, then there is no reason to worry about anyone else but you and your child.

Talk About the Long Term

Some people think that everything falls into place on it’s own, but that is a recipe for disaster. Make sure you talk with your partner about plans. Will you return to work? Will the child be raised with a certain religion? Will you encourage the child to attend college? These are all important questions, and it’s never too soon to talk about. Even if you and your partner aren’t exactly on the same page with the answers, you at least will know where each other stands when the situation arises.

Build a Support System

You can’t do it alone. No matter how strong you are or how ready you are, you need to build yourself a support system. At some point, you will just need 20 minutes to yourself to take a shower, or a babysitter for a last-minute emergency. The day you find out you are pregnant, start making sure you have a support system. Talk to your psychic, enlist the help of family members, and look for other mothers to help you through this period of your life. 

Don't forget to enjoy every second of your pregnancy, and to lean on other people when you need to.
