I think being afraid of labor is normal! I think it really is more anticipation than fear though - labor is a normal part of what your body was built to do. Are you afraid of the pain? Afraid of the spontaneity? Afraid of something else? Like Silver said, it's important to acknowledge WHAT you're afraid of, and work on educating yourself on that aspect. I think the more you know, the more confident you feel. This is a great website to really take your education to the next level.

That being said, I have heard that women who have VBAC/VBA2C feel more liberated, and powerful than they ever thought imaginable, and that the VBAC is a very healing experience!
