Health Tip: Appreciate Your Body Image While Pregnant

Suggestions to help you prepare for the changes

(HealthDay News) -- Some women have a difficult time accepting their changing, growing bodies while they are pregnant.

The womenshealth.gov website suggests how to help women better appreciate their bodies during pregnancy:

  • Understand that your body is changing to help you care for your growing baby.
  • Talk to friends, family and loved ones about what you're feeling.
  • Enjoy some light exercise or take a prenatal yoga class. This should help you feel better emotionally and physically.
  • Learn self-massage techniques.
  • Seek help from a mental health professional if you have serious problems accepting your changing body.
