Breeding children is a major event that is happening above all and throughout the world. Nevertheless, for the individual woman, it is a unique life event that can not be compared to anyone else’s. An event that is characterized by many of the great unpredictability, feeling of not having control, not even knowing how one’s emotional and physical reactions will look like.
Breeding children have been a physical and mental challenge for women for millennia. Today, it is safer and safer than it ever had before.
Nevertheless, birth defects are becoming more common today and the prevalence rates vary between 16 and 31 percent depending on studies and methods of measurement.
Birthlessness is usually divided as follows:
- Easy to moderate childbirth
- The fear of women can be managed by means of preparation and support of the environment.
- The woman can get help through supportive talks with a midwife/doctor at her midwife reception.
- Moderate to severe maternal
The fear is so great that it disturbs the woman’s everyday life, functions and the connection with the child. Women with this type of childbirth are referred to a reception with midwives who have a special education for this type of conversation (Aurora call), alternatively, a physician, psychologist, curator. As a rule, this reception is located at the obstetrics clinic where the woman will then feed.
2 percent of pregnant women experience what is commonly referred to as an extreme fear.
The fear is so great that the woman tries to avoid pregnancy and/or vaginal delivery. These women usually need help from psychologists to process their phobia.
Who gets scared, and what?
Fears look different depending on whether you are firstborn or native. Studies show that firstborns are most afraid of losing control, losing motivation, fear of the unknown, complications and, to some extent, the pain. Breastfeeding fear is usually based on an earlier traumatic delivery. Then it might not be as the woman expected, for example, if she did not receive the support she deemed necessary, could not handle the pain, or suffered from complications such as acute cesarean section, suction bell or large burst.
