One day on my way home from work, I saw a pregnant mother standing by the roadside sobbing and sobbing, and her mouth was still choking with words, as if she was complaining about her husband. He wanted to comfort her, but he stopped speaking. He had to gently pat his wife's shoulder and let her vent.
In daily life, many pregnant women have similar emotional reactions. They often lose their temper and become easily irritable, which cannot satisfy themselves. Why do women become so excited when they become pregnant?
Many women, after becoming pregnant, worry about the gender of their fetus being not ideal, as well as the pain during childbirth, fear of difficult labor, fetal malformations, and excessive thinking, leading to excessive psychological pressure. There are also pregnant mothers who are unable to control their temper when encountering trivial family or work matters, and in the long run, severe cases can develop into gestational anxiety disorder.
A series of physiological changes caused by anxiety in pregnant women can be transmitted to the fetus through the placenta, affecting the healthy development of the fetus, and even affecting the intellectual development of the baby after birth. In severe cases, it can lead to fetal malformations or even miscarriage. The post-war neonatal malformation rate in Germany is as high as 65%. Pediatric experts have conducted long-term research on this and believe that the psychological tension caused by war terror and post-war political crisis in pregnant women is an important factor leading to an increase in deformed babies. The study also found that during the first three months of pregnancy, fear, excessive worry, and emotional tension in pregnant women are important causes of cleft palate and cleft lip deformity.
Supplement 'psychological nutrition'
During pregnancy, women not only need to supplement their diet with nutrients, but also need to supplement their "psychological nutrition". When pregnant women are feeling restless, the husband should give their wife consideration and care. When they have nothing to do, they often accompany their wife for walks, listen to music, chat, or appreciate beautiful pictures, or imagine the appearance of future children together, design a beautiful future, etc., to minimize the stimulation of family chores on pregnant women.
In addition, pregnant women should maintain an open-minded attitude, avoid sulking and getting angry, and try not to watch movies and TV with malicious stimuli to avoid excessive emotional fluctuations.
Xu Zhi, the attending physician of the Department of Psychology and Psychiatry of the Affiliated Zhongda Hospital of Southeast University, said that it is very common for expectant mothers to have emotional problems, which cannot be regarded as psychological diseases, but also needs correct adjustment and guidance to give birth to a healthy baby.
