Worry, anxiety & help for new parents | Free health articles - May 2017


Worry, anxiety and help for new parents

Our free health articles cover a different women's health issue each month and may be reprinted in your organisation's newsletter, blog or website at no cost. This month's topics are:

Looking after you, looking after your baby

No one can possibly tell you what it feels like to be pregnant, to give birth to a baby or to become a new parent. These are deeply personal experiences and are different for everyone. It is a time of great change and challenge, often bringing feelings of joy and celebration, and potentially also feelings of worry and anxiety.

Breaking the worry cycle by being active

How do you break the cycle of worrying thoughts? With mindfulness and meditation? With stress-relieving or relaxation techniques? Jean Hailes Head of Translation, Education and Communication, Dr Helen Brown, suggests an additional tool for your self-help kit – getting out of your head, into your body and being physically active. 

Guidelines for using free health articles

If you do need to make any cuts or other edits, we ask that you please email Jo Roberts, Health Content Manager at jo.roberts@jeanhailes.org.au, a final copy before publication. The reason for this is that we carefully review all information and, as you will appreciate, it is easy for information to be taken out of context and meanings changed or compromised.

These guidelines are designed to give organisations clear direction in using agreed-upon information written by Jean Hailes for Women's Health. Jean Hailes makes these women's health articles available to various organisations, including health and community groups, for publication online and in newsletters for non-commercial, nonprofit, educational purposes only.

In line with Australian copyright laws, we require that you acknowledge the articles to Jean Hailes as follows:
