There is a deep connection between you and your baby. What your baby feels, you feel. And vice versa. So if you're pregnant with panic attacks then read on to see what you can do to stop your panic attacks, for you and your baby.
5 quick tips:
1. Avoid giving your attention to ANY reasons to be worried or fearful. Learn to sense or feel when your thoughts are being overly negative. You always have a choice on what, or how, you think. 99% of the time, when we consider what the worst thing that could happen to us on any subject, truth be told, it never is so bad as to justify excessive worrying.
2. At any signs of an incoming attack, immediately withdraw from whatever you're doing, and go for a walk, or sit if you are unable, and just enjoy your breathing. Breathe deeper and breathe slower. This is a scientific method which will clam your whole body and mind. Especially enjoy your out breath, through your mouth with a gentle “Haaa" sound.
3. Another avoidance tip is to use distraction on yourself. What you need to do here is take your mind off and away from the intrusive and unhelpful thoughts you are having, and put your mind somewhere completely different. You could phone a friend, or flick through the channels on your television, or play a video game etc. Just distract yourself, and in doing so your body and mind will take care of itself.
4. Go for a walk in nature. Spend some time with just you and your baby. A little gentle exercise can really help with panic attacks, and getting fresh air, a change of scenery and walking are all positive steps you can take to reduce your panic attacks.
5. Laugh more! This may seem trivial - but a sure way to lower your panic attacks is to find reasons to laugh more. There are many ways you can do this. Put on a comedy, read jokes, hang out with someone you know who always makes you laugh. You can go to comedy clubs. Just find ways to laugh more.
