Pregnancy Stress Protection: What to Do continued...

Most important: All our experts tell WebMD that women should not fret or worry that their "fretting or worrying" is going to harm their baby.

Says Rebarber: "Remember, it's normal to be concerned -- it's not going to harm you or your baby. And even if you experience a major stressful event, a good support system, good nutrition, and time for relaxation every day is usually enough to counter the effects, protecting you and your baby from harm."
