    When you are pregnant, your baby is exposed to everything you experience. This includes the sounds in the environment, the air you breathe, the food you eat and the emotions you feel.

    When you feel happy and calm, it allows your baby to develop in a happy, calm environment. However, emotions like stress and anxiety can increase particular hormones in your body, which can affect your baby’s developing body and brain.

    For one thing, a growing number of studies are confirming what used to be considered just an old wives’ tale — that stress really isn’t good for pregnant women. It not only increases the risk of pre-term labor, but possibly a host of other problems for babies after birth.

    Even more important — and clearly more difficult to discern — researchers are close to being able to predict who’s most susceptible to stress and at highest risk for complications, such as pre-term birth. In fact, some say it won’t be long before health-care providers have the tools to head off these problems before it’s too late.
