How do I ask my family to not make big decisions for me during my pregnancy?
It’s completely understandable that you want what’s best for you and your baby.
Be honest with your family and say that you want them to come with you to your prenatal appointments if you want them to. Set boundaries and tell them that you want to have this experience with their guidance, not with them making decisions for you.
If you need to explain more to your family, tell them that you respect their experiences and love them for wanting to help you, but it’s ultimately your body and your baby, so you need to be on the same page moving forward.
