Focus on What Matters and Avoid Overwhelm
Finding out you are pregnant is one of the most exciting times of your life but can also be overwhelming. There are endless choices, and every decision seems critical when you are responsible for growing, birthing, and caring for a baby. Many decisions require additional inputs like information, research, or expert opinions. Even the most minor decisions can seem significant given the high stakes of growing, birthing, and raising a human. Getting caught up in constant decision-making is easy, ultimately leaving you mentally drained and overwhelmed. This episode/article guides you to focusing on what matters most and avoiding overwhelm. Thank you to our sponsors Did you know that your health insurance will cover the cost of a breast pump?
