I used to be afraid of childbirth(ok I still am, but it's better).
What helped me was to educate myself on birth. In addition to tons of books, movies and You Tube I also took a 12 week long Brio Birth class with my husband. Talking openly with other woman including my midwife and doula about birth have helped as well.
Oh and DON'T watch those stupid Baby Story type shows on TV! Those scare the crap out of me until I remember that their entire purpose is to create drama for an audience. If they showed more standard births(such as those on You Tube) they would lose tons of viewers because honestly a lot of births are kinda dull.
