Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you're at risk of preterm labor or premature birth, you might feel scared or anxious about your pregnancy. This might be especially true if you have a history of preterm labor or premature birth.

Consult your health care provider about healthy ways to relax and stay calm. Certain techniques — such as imagining pleasant experiences, doing breathing exercises or listening to music — may help you reduce your anxiety during pregnancy, although these methods have not been well-studied.
