Birth Fear

Posted on March 15, 2018

Having suffered both physical and psychological trauma during my sons vaginal birth in 2013 I went on to develop quite severe tokophobia in my second pregnancy resulting in an elective-c-section. Third time round I felt empowered to maybe give vaginal birth another try right up until the final weeks of pregnancy when anxiety really set in and I was at a loss as to what to decide. Both options seemed terrifying. 

As it happened I didn't get much choice in the matter anyway when she arrived 5 weeks early by emergency cesarean. Oh well.
