awkward question ...

How harmful could it be for the babies if I'm in a high stress situation? I have to decide whether or not to confront someone with unacceptable behavior, and I know I can do so in a calm fashion, but I certainly won't FEEL calm. Can my being in a high conflict situation harm them or put them in any sort of stress?

I know this is kind of a weird and awkward question ... so thanks for reading. :)

Re: awkward question ...

  • I'm not an expert but from what I know it's long term stress that's harmful not short term. So if this person is causing you low level stress over a long time that's worse that the stress you will have confronting them.

  • I've always had high stress pregnancies unfortunately. Not due to the pregnancies, but other factors in life including a long running custody battle for 2 of my 4 kids. And all my babies have turned out great. Babies are so strong and can get through so many things amazingly. :) Like PP said, short term stress is no problem. :)
