Do You Have Questions About Pregnancy?
It is completely normal to be slightly anxious when you consider the idea of becoming or being pregnant. 12.6% of expectant mothers reported prenatal psychological distress with 25% of them turning to a mental health specialist. What isn’t such a great idea is letting one of the most awe-inspiring experiences known to be marred by unnecessary mental and physical stress. During pregnancy consultation, women are more sensitive to environmental stressors and may develop symptoms of depression and anxiety. In cases where a woman may already have a minor issue, whether previously diagnosed or not, these changes can exacerbate their condition and create effects that will last far beyond the pregnancy itself.
As with most things that affect human behavior and thought processes, both mental and physical forces come into play during pregnancy consultation. This means that a clinic with a staff that is familiar with a wide variety of disciplines is normally the wisest choice. Lotus Psychiatry and Wellness offer a full menu of services that can address all of your concerns about being or becoming pregnant. They can assess your current mental and physical state, offer you guidance on the best ways to cope with the coming events you may face, and offer you nutritional advice to help you maintain your physical and mental health.
