Pregnancy is a divine process. It is the stage when a lady turns into a woman. It is also the phase in the life of a woman when she becomes more aware of her body and the little life inside it. It is a whole new empowering experience, and among all the learning she had in the past this is where she is most open. Embracing motherhood will never be easy, but the journey will all be meaningful. Below we discuss the pregnancy effect on women.
Women are known to be very attached regardless of what kind of relationship they are involved with. They are the most compassionate kind. The same thing with their newborn, they have the tendency to have that intense feeling of not being far away from their child. Just for a second they would immediately miss it. They would not think of anything else but their child. But this should be overcome because it wouldn’t be healthy for both the mother and child.
It is very common for women to change physically during and after the pregnancy. Some would take it as if it is okay to transform as long as their babies are healthy. Some would definitely have it as a big thing. However, even if a woman conditioned herself of the outcome of pregnancy, this still affects her one way or another. She will not feel good about herself, lowering her self-esteem and confidence. Thus, if the people around her would definitely make her feel that it doesn’t really matter (ehem husbands!) there would be no place for her to feel inadequate.
Let’s take a little bend and also highlight the mental effect after a woman gives birth. Pregnancy, during and after, can bring a roller coaster of emotions to women. It can combine extreme happiness, fear, anxiety, excitement altogether. They are all coming together to the point that a person’s mind and body can no longer contain, it can be too overwhelming. But to clarify it is not a sign of weakness or mental illness. The great thing is it could be addressed by seeking professional advice and treatments. Support and love from the family are also needed, in that way no depression or anything of that kind can steal the joy and fulfilment of being a mother.
That is one word that would sum up a woman’s feeling following a successful pregnancy. They would feel thankful of their own mothers for they already know how it feels to become one. They would feel thankful to God for they have been an instrument to produce something wonderful in this lifetime. They would suddenly be grateful to their husband for becoming their partners, their perspectives are now more positive the same way with how they deal with others.
The adventures and challenges that will approach first-time mothers could be endless and unique every time. It will not be like what we used to read in the baby book or journals. It would have a fair share of happiness and hardships. But the thing is after you have gone through all these experiences you will be a whole new person, an updated and better versions of yourselves.
