For me, the anxiety usually starts with a thought. A “what if” that spirals into the worst possible scenario, the fear spreading through my body until it stuns me immobile. The other day it was in reaction to the news that my placenta was still covering my cervix.
This isn’t the first time I’ve had to reign in anxious thoughts during my pregnancy. And after chatting with a range of women for this podcast, I know these emotional challenges are something many of us share. So, that’s what this episode is all about: the strategies that have helped us get through, the expert recommendations on what we can do, and how to recognise when we need extra help from the pros.
Thank you to the experts: Caitlin Cady, founder of the app Heavily Meditated, and clinical psychologist Dr Nicole Highet, founder of COPE: the Centre of Perinatal Excellence.
