Perinatal Anxiety Disorder - How to prevent?

Tips for prevention and recovery

  • Adjust your expectations. Having a baby is a big change and it is normal to feel unsure at first, do not be hard on yourself.
  • Seek support from family and friends. Get help with tasks, express your worries and discuss your options.
  • Talk about other topics, and you may realise there are many other things in life that matter. Learn to give attention to the positives.
  • Practise doing one thing at a time. Keep yourself occupied, but focus on one thing at a time so you can give your full attention to the task.
  • Have regular breaks where you get to unwind, engage in deep breathing, listen to your favourite music, go for a walk, or any activity that helps you to relax.
