In the midst of all the changes that occur during pregnancy, pregnant people also have to face the onslaught on unsolicited advice, stories, and comments from almost everyone in their lives. While most of this is shared in a manner that is intended to be helpful oftentimes it can have the opposite impact leaving parents-to-be confused, anxious, and sometimes downright scared. During this time, people should feel inspired and confident in their health and their choices, not doubtful and afraid.
