Stressed Wife Is Pregnant Again?
We are a couple with 1 daughter aged 1 year 8 months.
Hello Sabarraphael, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, you and your wife need to know that having an abortion without a medical indication is an act that is not legally permitted in Indonesia and the perpetrator of an abortion can be subject to criminal law. Therefore, basically having an abortion is not an option that you and your wife can choose.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and caring for a newborn are very difficult and sometimes traumatic situations for some women. If indeed the resistance faced by your wife is currently quite severe, you should bring your wife to consult a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist can provide several therapies such as psychotherapy or include your wife in a support group to help your wife accept the condition of her pregnancy and help overcome the anxiety she is currently facing. If psychotherapy alone can not help reduce the anxiety and stress experienced by your wife, a psychiatrist can also provide certain drugs that can overcome these symptoms. In addition, you can also help provide the support needed by your wife and accompany your wife during the process of pregnancy, childbirth, and later when caring for a newborn baby.
Providing therapy to pregnant women who experience psychological disorders such as your wife is very important to do because these psychological disorders can more or less affect your wife's pregnancy and the health of the fetus as well.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
