Is it normal not to be afraid of childbirth at all?

Unlike most other pregnant women, you feel no fear of childbirth and wonder if this is normal.

  • Rest assured, not being afraid of childbirth is not the same as being unaware.
  • Each person's fear of childbirth is different, and our fears are also linked to our own history.
  • You have taken childbirth preparation classes or received advice from your mother, a friend, or your midwife and now you feel ready and totally calm.
  • Trust your body, your baby, nature, and the medical team and you'll be alright!
