Many women feel not only angry but they also feel violated when any random person goes around putting hands on their belly.

To many people, a pregnant woman's body might seem like a body part different from their whole body but it is very much the opposite. Even if in the best intentions you put your hand on a pregnant woman's body, you need to consider that you might be violating her personal space by doing so and this can make her very uncomfortable.

#3 Making them self conscious

It is normal that pregnant women usually get more attention. While some women enjoy this attention, there are many who get really self-conscious about their bodies with all the extra attention. They get conscious about their weight, their body, and their baby bump. And unnecessary touching of the belly can make self-consciousness really bad for these women. So next time you see a pregnant woman, an advice for you all, please keep your hands in control.
