Boost your self-esteem during pregnancy

February 26, 2020

 

With all the changes that occur during pregnancy, hormonal and physical, you may not be having the ‘glowing’ experience that many people talk about. You might be finding it difficult to adjust to the changes taking place and your self-esteem and body image may be suffering. Social pressure and the expectations of how you should feel and look during pregnancy can further lead to lower self-esteem.

 

Feelings of low self-esteem and negative thoughts during pregnancy are common rather than unusual, but there are ways to boost your self-esteem, confidence and body image.

 

  • Build strong support – spend more time in positive rather than critical and negative relationships.

 

  • Accept that the changes can be a little difficult to adjust to.

 

  • Be kind to yourself – by using daily positive affirmations, practicing self-nurturing, pampering.

 

  • Listen to your own body – you know what’s best for you.

 

  • Keep doing the things you like to do – leisure activities or work.

 

  • Talk about your anxieties and concerns.

If you are having negative thoughts and feelings of low self-esteem during your pregnancy we have a range of confidential services available to support you at Muma Nurture.
