    OH confided in me that he has been having a recurring dream/nightmare about me dying during childbirth, and its now escalated to him losing both me and the baby. I have tried to reassure him that it wont happen, but he is terrifed. He started crying at work yesterday as he couldnt get the thought out of his head :cry:.
    I dont know how to make him feel better.....It also doesnt help that I to have had the same dreams, and I for some reason cant vision anything past the next few weeks. I have had no dreams of bringing baby home or the 3 of us together. So I am slightly worried as well.

    Please tell me that other people are like this?

    My husband has told me that his biggest fear about labour and the birthing experience is me dying, and worst case scenario baby dying too. I don't think he's had any nightmares as such but I think it's a common male concern as it's been mentioned in some of the alternative birthing books I've read.
