I know you might all think i'm silly (i do to lol) but i'm really getting myself worked up about giving birth. I was put to sleep for an emergency c-section with Grace, so i don't know anything about giving birth. I'm frightened of the following;
Baby getting stuck
Not being able to cope
Not being able to physically do it
Oh my god...HELP!!!
I bet you all think i'm mad, but i have a huge fobia of hospitals to start with and have panic attacks when i have to stay in one, i pass out if i have to have an injection. What am i going to do? xx
i have given birth once before, to my son who is nearly 6, he was born early and i really struggled with his whole birth. i have mentioned to my midwife my worries and nearer the time she is going to do a home visit & go over EVERYTHING with me, mayb urs could do the same?
sorry i havent been much help but didnt wanna r&r and wanted to let u know u wasnt alone or silly
I highly recommend a book called "Taking the fear out of childbirth" by Grantly Dick read. Its a bit dated but well worth a read. He was an obstestrician and quite a pioneer for natural childbirth. After reading it I am really looking forward to our birth!
I am so with you on this, I am so pettrified that I am actually dreaming about it! I am scared that my options will be limited, like if I am too far dilated for an epidurial etc... I could dry about it now. I am in my late 20's and feel like a child acting like this. I am 22 wks pregnant and don't know how I will cope for the following 18 wks.
Well this is my 3rd so I'm not really afraid anymore...I had epidurals with my first two, and I plan on having it again, it was a pleasant experience and I was able to enjoy my labors and births, and it was very wonderful...I was scared with my first but not so much with my 2nd or 3rd.
Jojo mummy once you are in labour believe me you will not care about anyone looking at your bits! It is scarey not knowing but once it's happening you just get on with it, you will be able to physically do it x
Thanks ladies. Glad to know i'm not alone in thinking this. I just can't imagine myself being able to cope with it all. I'm so scared about every aspect of it and i keep thinking of all the things that could go wrong xx
I felt the same, a bit less anxious now as have spoken with a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner who has given birth this way 4 times and teaches classes which I have booked in for. I'm not expecting it to work miracles but to use the relaxation techniques to prepare my mind as I'm terrified of hospitals and tend to panic easily!
