Being afraid of giving birth is a very real and valid fear to have. Every woman thinks about it at some point in their life. We want to share some steps you can take to alleviate these fears and feel more prepared.

Learn More About Childbirth

The more you feel informed about the childbirth process and what to expect, the more confidence you can have in your body when the time comes. Talk to your OB/GYN, midwife, or any other professionals associated with your care. Learning from a healthcare team you trust can alleviate some of your fears.

With the lack of information comes concerns and fears. You don’t have to have all the answers right away. Rather than weeding through all the information online, talk to your doctor. They can answer your questions honestly and help you develop a birth plan. 

Prepare Yourself Physically & Mentally

Contractions that come with the birthing process can feel overwhelming, but it’s important to understand that these contractions are your friend. With each contraction, your body is preparing to move the baby from your uterus, down through the birth canal, and out of your vagina. 

Though the pain can get intense, breathing techniques, pain relievers, massage therapy, a warm bath, or an exercise ball can all provide some relief and endurance. 

Knowing what options you’re most comfortable with, like an epidural, before going into labor can help you prepare for the big day and feel less fearful.
