Losing someone close is so difficult during pregnancy. Even worse with a high risk one
I lost my best friend yesterday to a tragic accident involving alcohol and a loaded gun.
I have high anxiety problems as is, PLUS pregnancy, and NOW this?!
I'm amazed I've survived this so far I truly am. My Mom kept wanting to call 911 this morning because I panicked majorly and hyperventilated till I stopped breathing all together fr 2-3 minutes at a time.
Did that cause any harm to the baby?
(PS: I have weekly counseling sessions with a pregnancy care center worker, and soon with a licensed therapist to help with grieving)
I really enjoy talking to my counselor at the pregnancy care center, BUT she is super religious, and well I'm not, I dont believe in god at all. I believe in what I can see, and WHO I can see. I see Mother Earth, and thats what I believe in.
But she's such a nice lady I feel that if I dont let her say her pointless prayer at the end of our session she wont be as nice to me or something?
How can I politely tell her that praying doesnt work, nor does it really do a **** thing!?
I would talk to your OB about the health aspects of it...and definitely talk to the licensed therapist about the best way to talk to the counselor. I am sure she wil still be nice to you if you approach her about it the right way, like not mean or anything.
