Someone I know and am friends with on Facebook just posted the following on her page:
Tokophobia - fear of childbirth or pregnancy. Does having nightmares of both for eleven years after being pregnant and giving birth and doubling up on birth control methods for several years after the kid was born to prevent another pregnancy count as a phobia? I think it probably does. Apparently I'm not the only woman who has this.
I'm such a pregnancy and birth junkie that it never even crossed my mind that there would be such a deep-seated fear of birth or fear of pregnancy as to be a clinical phobia.
Do you know anyone who has such a fear of birth or fear of pregnancy that she might be considered tokophobic?
Thanks for reading and sharing,
