Does Arguing Affect My Unborn Baby?

What type of affect does arguing do to your baby while your pregnant… like arguing with you baby's father?


Hi Arnicka,

In general, it's best to try and stay relaxed during pregnancy. When you argue your stress levels rise, which causes hormonal and chemical responses in your body. All of this can affect your baby.

However, it's important to remember that mothers have been dealing with a lot of stress – and argument – and babies have been being born healthy for ages. Do what you can to minimize the amount of stress and argument – but don't cause more stress by feeling guilty.

If possible, keep yourself away from stressful situations where you can just enjoy being pregnant.

Let me know if I can help any further and best of luck to you and your babe.
