Doctor, tell me, will pregnancy affect my character and relationships with people? I’m afraid that I will become a tiger, not a fluffy rabbit. (Aizhan, Kazakhstan)
Pregnancy definitely changes the psyche and character. But it’s good! Pregnancy hormones rebuild the psyche in the right way. On the one hand, it is the protection of offspring. On the other hand, the slowdown of all processes and reactions. Therefore, you may feel that you have become aggressive and capricious. But this is the correct natural mechanism. After the birth of a child, other hormones will turn on, and you will become flexible, balanced and calm.
