If you're feeling a little anxious before your birth, these 5 strategies will help you feel calm and prepared!

The last month or two of pregnancy can be a tense time. Besides the long to-do list of preparing for the baby’s arrival, there are natural concerns that arise about how things will go during the birth and postpartum period. It’s normal to feel some anxiety in these weeks before the birth.

It helps to take some time to think through what you’re expecting to happen. Talking about your concerns with a trusted friend or family member, or even your doctor, and making lists to organize your thoughts can relieve the pressure you may be feeling.

If you’re looking for more specific steps, put these 5 things on your list for the last month of pregnancy. Each can bring you peace and a feeling of calm as you prepare for this big and exciting change.
