phobia of birth

Hey mamas, How long did u mamas get over the phobia of giving birth? I have a boy and i really want a girl next but the thought of all the pain, just a turn off and turns to a phobia. The contraction pain, the v tear, the stiching, the after pain of swollen private parts.

I got over it as soon as everthing has healed properly. I share the same sentiments as the other mothers here, the joy of seeing the child bring so much happiness trumps over the temporary pain.

Hi, I can understand your pain and worry but think of the positive things like having a complete family. Kids playing together and having a good time :) No better feeling than that

It’s just a short period of time as compare to seeing your baby smiling. I think this will let you forget all the pain.

There are many pain management options these days. I think I can understand your phobia but the experience is priceless. Giving your 1st born a sibling is one of the greatest gift too. I am sure you have your support from your family. Talk to your husband about it too.
