Although it’s normal to have periods of worry and stress when you’re pregnant, some women have feelings that don’t go away and this can be a sign of something more serious. If you find yourself feeling more upset than you feel happy, make sure you talk to someone. Speak to your midwife, GP or health visitor, who can all support you and help you find the right treatment.
Looking for peace and quiet? You've already got it. In this animation, Headspace's co-founder, Andy Puddicombe, describes the stillness that's present in all our minds so long as we know how to find it. Learning to meditate means getting in touch with that sense of underlying calm. And once we've experienced it, it's always with us, just like the blue sky is there, no matter how stormy the clouds start to look.
