Fear of Pregnancy – How hypnosis can help you calm your fears and prepare to welcome a new life
Does a fear of pregnancy or childbirth stand between you and the children you want?
Do you wonder if it will ever be possible to positively welcome being pregnant?
People generally suppose that, “of course”, every woman looks forward to having children of her own, when the circumstances are right.
But this general supposition isn’t correct. Some women genuinely don’t want to be mothers. And some women might want children, but are frightened of the processes of pregnancy and/or childbirth.
But they don’t like to talk about it, because they fear people will think they’re silly or ‘bad’ somehow.
Fear of pregnancy is a normal response
Anxiety is a normal and natural response to real and perceived threats. Fear is a life-saving mechanism that drives us to look out for ourselves and to take care around actual and potential dangers.
Our species has survived and flourished because we have this capacity to imagine a potential future threat and take avoiding action.
The key word in that last sentence is ‘imagine’. It is our imagination that can create possible future scenarios for us that are so ‘true to life’ that they can really scare us. This is a mixed blessing!
Of course it’s useful to be able to think of possible future problems and take steps to avoid or mitigate them. But our powerful imagination can run away with us. We are not very good at realistic assessment of how likely those problems are to occur.
And we often underestimate our ability to deal with those problems if they do occur. This over- and under-estimation happens because we get very emotional about our imaginings.
This doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do about this.
Understanding the role of emotion
When you understand the role of emotion in creating these fears, it’s clear that dealing with them needs more than just ‘rational’ explanations about why there is nothing, or little, to fear.
You’ve probably already tried to ‘tell yourself’ that you haven’t really got anything to worry about. And the chances are that you haven’t had much success with that. What’s needed is a way to calm down the emotion.
