Hi im new here and think this is a awesome site its reassuring reading about people who go through the same thing I do everyday. I have lived with social anxiety for a little over 4 years now although everyday is a struggle I have learnt to deal with it. Recently me and my partner have found out that we are expecting a baby and although we are very excited, my anxiety levels have hit the roof! My panic attacks have gotten worse than ever and i am no longer able to control them. I am really happy to be having a baby but cant help but think this must be very stressful on the baby just as it is on me. Im interested to know if this has happened to anyone else and how to deal with it, without medication.
