Even though this Is baby number 4 for us I'm still terrified of labor. Not that it's gonna hurt just of something happening. I've always been scared of that cause of everything you read an hear in the news an I k now it's a rare chance but it's like one minute I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over then the. Next I'm freaking out cause I'm scared. Anyone else going through this?

Same here this is my first and I'm giving birth at a place I worked at, I'm a nurse but would sometimes fill in when maternity were short and of course every time I went there someone would pass out haemorrhaging in the shower! I'm also terrified of a stillbirth and there are so many stories on Facebook of people complications... Not what I want to read!

I'm exactly the same, baby no 4 and this one is worrying me. I was so confident about labour the last time that I had a home birth! It all went fantastically, have no idea why this one is freaking me out so much, but nice to hear I'm not the only one!
