Interestingly , the typical urban mothers . Therefore, the received wisdom mothers before and during pregnancy are many but unfortunately not a whole number , "said Risa .
As a result of having a lot of knowledge , increased maternal awareness . But without full information , awareness is a good thing that initially turned cause " pressure " on the mother herself .

that have accumulated into a depression , every father and mother should
accept the fact that the changes experienced by pregnant women , is not

term also refers to the findings of the psychiatrist , if not detected
early and dealt with thoroughly , could be a " root " of the baby blues

Encourage mothers . "
As long as the mother gets enough support from the people around , feel
happier , have a positive view of pregnancy , accompanied by people who
