Tokophobia Treatment with Hypnotherapy
Tokophobia is the fear of childbirth and many women suffer in silence
There are two types of Tokophobia:
Primary Tokophobia – this is a morbid and profound fear that leads to a complete avoidance of pregnancy, even if the sufferer would love to have children.
Secondary Tokophobia – this is often due to a previous traumatic birth experience or poor medical attention, post natal depression or other such upsetting events, which renders the sufferer emotionally unable or unwilling to have more children.
Symptoms of Tokophobia
As with all phobias there are the symptoms of extreme panic when hearing about childbirth, reading about childbirth or indeed anything childbirth related. Even being around a pregnant woman can induce feelings of real panic or disgust. The thought of giving birth and/or the associated pain is terrifying. The can result in:
Avoidance of pregnancy
Request for Caesarean birth where there is no medical need
Termination of Pregnancy
Typical comments from those sufferers:
"The truth is that the very thought of having something almost alien-like growing inside me is disgusting”
"It's not too strong to say that the very thought of childbirth disgusts me in a big way."
"It's much more than an anxiety - I am actually physically repulsed by pregnancy and childbirth."
"I even struggle to be around friends when they are pregnant and can't bear to watch or listen to anything about the process of having a baby”
