What is Tokophobia?
Tokophobia is an anxiety-based condition in which a woman has a significant fear of pregnancy and/or childbirth.
Primary tokophobia is experienced by women who have never given birth. She will dread the thought of pregnancy and giving birth and may be reacting to information she has received from other people. This could be related to stories she's heard in the past about difficult birthing experiences, watching a programme that portrays childbirth as dangerous or shameful or even perhaps past sexual abuse.
Secondary tokophobia is where a woman has already undergone a pregnancy which for some reason was traumatic. It can also be related to women who have experienced a stillbirth, a miscarriage or a termination.
Most women who do manage to overcome their fear enough to fall pregnant will usually insist on an elective caesarian section as their fear of labour pain can be overwhelming. This fear may have been created by a previously complicated delivery or inadequate pain relief.
This is a distressing phobia which is often poorly recognised and treated by professionals.
