  1. Make time for yourself. This is crucial, especially if you're feeling overwhelmed. Dedicate some time daily to do something you enjoy without stress or obligations. Whether it's reading a book, taking a walk, or simply relaxing in a warm bath, schedule it and stick to it.

  2. Breathe deeply. When you feel overwhelmed, take a few deep breaths and focus on releasing the tension from your body. Not only does this help you calm down, but it also oxygenates your blood and helps your baby get the nutrients they need.

  3. Connect with others. Talking about your feelings can be helpful, especially with people who understand what you're going through. Seek out support groups or chat with friends. Just talking about your experience can help reduce stress levels.

  4. Seek professional help- A professional can provide you with tools and strategies to manage your stress. They can also offer support and guidance as you go through this time.

If you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed, don't hesitate to ask for help. It's the best thing you can do for yourself and your baby.
