  • I think that many women have those fears, whether they choose to admit it or not is a different story. The best way to combat any irrational or overwhelming fear is to talk to someone you trust and someone you know will be straight forward with you while still taking your feelings into account. And stay away from those shows about high risk labors...those will freak anyone out!

  • i had fears like that before i gave birth too. i went to lamaze class the day before and they helped me get over those fears. they told me that its only rare occurances that happens. they also said that they do everything possible to make sure that no one dies during or after the birth. remember...women have been giving birth since the begining of time. not that many have died in the process.
