I have anxiety that is pretty well under control...unless I have a plane ride or surgery in the near future. Next wednesday I have my scheduled c-section and I am starting to get more and more scared. My first c-section was emergency and after 18 hours of labor I really didn't care if they used their bare hands to get that baby out. But now I know I will be laying on a table while they cut me open, take the baby out and sew me back up. I know it's the only way to get him out, but I'm scared of surgery complications, on top of normal hope-the-baby-is-okay stuff. How did you mentally prepare yourself to not be scared going into the surgery, i.e. not having a panic attack on the table?Answer Question
have u looked into ICAN
