Pregnancy brings with it an infinity of physical changes in the woman’s body, as well as psychological, but for this reason we should not think of this process as a disease.
Often, we pathologize the pregnancy due to the fact of being subjected to a more exhaustive medical control than when we are not in condition, which leads us to relate the pregnancy with fear and negativity, something that is not recommended at all for the mother or for the future baby.
We must understand, as pregnant women or as family members, that a woman’s body is ready to gestate and give birth, and that the changes that occur in her body are adaptations to let a life grow, they are not symptoms of any disease.
It is good to protect, not overprotect, a pregnant woman.
A pregnant woman is strong, and is in full physical and mental faculties to lead a normal life and, although we must take certain care to ensure the health of the baby, a pregnant woman should not be protected.
On the other hand, what is highly recommended is to provide the pregnant woman with an environment of love and affection, since emotional support from both the partner and family is crucial at this stage.
There are many emotions that invade a woman during 40 weeks of gestation. Anxiety and worries in relation to motherhood and childbirth are common and family support and affection help regulate the mental health of the future mother and the fetus.
The love of the couple helps reduce pain during the time of delivery.
In addition, the couple plays a crucial role both during pregnancy and at the time of delivery, since their accompaniment throughout the process brings benefits such as:
- Improved mood, security and self-esteem as a mother and as a woman.
- Reduction of fear and worries by feeling accompanied throughout the process.
- At the time of delivery, being calm and receiving the love of your partner, helps the secretion of oxytocin in a natural way, which considerably reduces pain.
