It is difficult to distinguish between misinformation and hoax information
For a pregnant woman, any information regarding pregnancy will be read carefully so that this information can be used to keep the fetus healthy and when giving birth to a healthy and smooth child without any obstacles.
However, often the information on social media is misinformation and hoaxes.
One of the most frequent is “Spicy Eating Can Give Birth in Place” even though the fact is not true.
This can be seen in Hellosehat’s article written by the doctor himself:
For an earthly person, it would be difficult to tell the difference because the mind and heart are being divided in half to keep the fetus healthy.
Make stress and anxiety
Being a pregnant woman will always be careful in any activities so that you don’t have a miscarriage, one of which is getting information about pregnancy.
On social media, there is a lot of information about pregnancy from people known and not.
The problem is when the information comes from people who are not in their field, then it is mixed with hoaxes and misinformation.
This makes the mind stressed whether this information is really valid or not.
Thinking too much can make the mind stressful and ultimately difficult to think positively.
In addition, on social media there are also many pregnant women who complain about pregnancy, this has a negative impact on other pregnant women who are currently not going to.
The impact of this complaint is that pregnant women become panicked until they end up stressing themselves even though nothing is happening.
In addition to a lot of information about pregnancy, on social media there are also many opinions and comments from various groups,
The problem is when you see emotional comments that suggest pregnant women get into that emotional state.
The mother’s heart when pregnant is different from usual days, it is very sensitive because the heart and mind are focused on the fetus she is carrying.
If it is too emotional it will have an impact on the fetus and the health of the mother. So it is very dangerous to open social media while pregnant.
Those are some of the negative effects of opening social media for too long.
Indeed, social media has many positive effects, but when you are pregnant it would be better not to open social media first.
If it is important and critical, it would be better to reduce its use so as not to be like some of the negative impacts that have been mentioned above.
This is because pregnant women are very sensitive in heart and mind.
Information about pregnancy is best taken from reliable sources.
