Bed rest and a high-risk pregnancy were hard enough on their own when I was at home by myself. I didn't have another child (or children) to also take care of and worry about.
But most of my clients and the women I speak with have done the high-risk pregnancy/preterm delivery stint before and now are on their second or third tour PLUS have another child or two to take care of at the same time.
Between the guilt of feeling like you're disappointing your toddler, to the frustration of not knowing how to manage the ever-escalating tantrums, to the stress of wondering what your stress is doing to your unborn baby....it can all get to be really, really overwhelming.
If you are on bed rest or have a high-risk pregnancy and have another child (or several) too, and you've been wondering how to deal with their tantrums, this is a MUST WATCH interview.
I speak with parenting expert Nicki Paulun, who is a huge advocate of conscious parenting. During this interview, she shares several tips and strategies on how to be the best mom you can be (without losing your own mind and having your own tantrum) when you're dealing with the stress of pregnancy complications as well as the pressures of caring for another child (or children) who are tantruming on their own.
