Lesson of the Week: Common Concerns for New Parents

It is common for parents to feel concerned about finances throughout the pregnancy; however, you should not use finances to mask concerns such as fear of parenting and pregnancy. In addition to financial concerns, other common concerns that may come up during pregnancy include such things as:
 
  • Concerns about mood swings and fatigue
  • Questioning of parenting roles and priorities
  • Changes in sexual relationship
  • Fear that sexual intercourse will harm the fetus
  • Ambivalence toward the pregnancy
  • Examination of feelings toward your own parents
  • Concern over the baby's well-being.
     
Communicate with your partner regarding your concerns so that you're not dealing with your emotions alone. Seek advice from other parents and professionals who have experience in dealing with these issues.
