No judgement intended people! - just curious about if sufferers of tokophobia who want to have elective c-sections have tried conquering their fear of child birth or aren't interested in trying to?
I was a bit scared of giving birth so did a course on hypnobirthing and it took away all my fear and resulted in a wonderful natural birth and speedy recovery (I was up and walking around with my baby immediately after the cord was cut). It really was the most empowering experience I've ever had, and I wish all women could birth without fear. The mind is such a powerful thing and I believe with the right techniques, our fears can be eliminated.
So just wondering what other women have done to help themselves eliminate the fear
Also, have you thought about if you were unable to have a c-section for whatever reason, like going in to early labour and there was absolutely no way you could get to a hospital, like if you were trapped in an elevator or natural disaster or something? Wouldn't it be good to learn some coping techniques just incase you don't get the c-section you're hoping for?
