Pregnancy can be a time of self-discovery and change. While you are in the process of assessing the new path ahead, both you and your child’s wellbeing could be a concern. Although pregnancy and parenthood can cause a strain on even the best of intimate relationships, it is helpful to understand healthy intimate relationship patterns versus unhealthy ones. Having a reliable support system is key whether it is friends, family, neighbors, a coworkers or anyone you truly trust.
