Navigating Pregnancy with Good Mental Health: Tips and Advice

January 11, 2024
Soulside Team

Women are multitaskers, with so many hats and taking on so many roles throughout their lives. We juggle various responsibilities and fit into different situations with grace. Motherhood is but one of the many hats that women wear.

Becoming a mama is a unique experience that's hard to understand until you're experiencing it. It's a learn-as-you-go kind of gig, and every mom's journey is special and unique. We often hear, 'it takes a village' to raise a child, but we also believe it takes a village to support a mom too.

At Soulside, we recognize the difficulties and joys of motherhood and strive to be your ally and support throughout your journey. Our community of moms and an expert nurse-midwife are always available to provide guidance, support, and understanding. Before you begin, we hope you know that you're not alone.

Pregnancy is often seen as a joyful time, but it's totally normal to have feelings of overwhelm or just mixed feelings. You may find yourself worrying about a lot of things like

  • The changes in your roles (becoming a mother, stopping work)
  • The major changes in your relationships, of course
  • Whether you will be a good mom or not
  • Fear that there will be complications with the pregnancy or the baby
  • Physical health problems and pregnancy complications
  • Fear of childbirth
  • Lack of support and being alone in this journey

To support moms-to-be during pregnancy, we've put together a guide with practical tips and advice  from our experts.


  • Prioritize self-care, both physically and emotionally.
  • Reach out for support from your healthcare providers, mental health professionals, or online support groups.
  • Practice relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing.
  • Find healthy coping mechanisms for stress, such as exercise, journaling, or talking to a trusted friend.
  • Educate yourself about pregnancy and parenting, but be selective about the sources you trust
  • Enjoy the experience of pregnancy and becoming a parent


  • Hesitating to ask for help or support when needed.
  • Comparing yourself to other pregnant moms or parents.
  • Putting too much pressure on yourself to be perfect.
  • Ignoring your physical or emotional health.
  • Relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with stress.
  • Failing to set boundaries and prioritize your well-being.

As a pregnant mom, you may experience ups and downs, and it's important to know that you're not alone in your journey. Trust that your journey is unique, yet you have the strength and support to navigate it confidently, knowing that others have walked this path before and are here to help.
