How do you handle stress during your twin pregnancy?

Dealing with Stress during a Twin Pregnancy

  • Prenatal yoga and Prenatal water yoga was amazing for me. -Joella Elena-Ruefer Koenig
  • Yoga Nidra is meditation practice (non sleep deep rest aka NSDR) that has enormous restorative qualities, all backed by science. Dr Huberman talks a lot about it, a neuroscientist at Stanford. If you can squeeze in 10-15 minute practices here and there it will be the same as a restorative REM state nap. Practice stress management now, the pregnancy is the least stressful part of twins. -Shauna Thompson
  • Yoga and breath work. -Jade Mason
  • The stress comes after giving birth. During the pregnancy just sleep over pink clouds 🤗. -Петя Йоцова
  • Do your best one day at a time, and for everything else, accept so many things are out of our control. Enjoy the gelato, if you can 😉. -Laura Marie

Advice for dealing with twin pregnancy stress

  • Baths. So many baths. Also, avoid reading internet things every day. There are helpful tidbits all over, and things that can make you excited, but also soooo much negative. Don’t let that in. Gift yourself all the rest and peace you can give yourself when you can. If you have the go-ahead to eat what you want, go ahead and do it. Those babies are hungry. Don’t be concerned about being ‘the pregnant lady”. State your needs. And accept the opportunities to take care of yourself. -Reba May
  • I cry lol then I usually feel better. -Kaitlen Rachal
