As a perinatal wellness consultant- I hear a lot of women talking about the fears they have about giving birth. Do you know the acronym for the word FEAR?
What if I told you it’s:
In this blog post will list the 6 main points of fear that I hear most often… Plus 4 BONUS points. I love talking to moms about how many of us are programmed to fear this natural, non-medical event. As a mother of three and one in the way, I am here to help women and families reprogramming the way they perceive what childbirth is and is not. So here is a short list of the most common thoughts I have heard.
- Being able to take the pain
- Tearing or an episiotomy
- Having a C-Section
- Unwanted interventions
- Refusing unwanted treatment
- Having an unhealthy baby
- Not making it to the hospital
- Dying during childbirth
- Baby dying at birth
- Having to be induced
