Course Introduction

Tokophobia is a pathological dread and avoidance of childbirth. It is a distressing condition which can often be overlooked by medical professionals. As well as specific phobias and anxiety, tokophobia may be associated with depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Fear of childbirth is common and more intense in pregnant women who have not had a previous experience of childbirth. Over 20% of pregnant women report fear and 6% describe a fear that is disabling.

Altogether 13% of women who are not pregnant report fear of childbirth sufficient to postpone or avoid pregnancy.

This is a 3 hours CPD course for therapists LIVE on ZOOM to assist clients to overcome extreme anxiety so they can experience freedom from fear of conception, pregnancy or a traumatic birth experience.

This course will cover working with the following tokophobic clients:
Women who have had a previous traumatic birth experience (secondary tokophobia)
Women who have suffered a previous trauma such as sexual abuse or rape
Those who have had no previous first hand experience of childbirth (primary tokophobia)
Men and women who have witnessed a traumatic birth as a birth partner
Those who are avoiding pregnancy altogether or have subconscious blocks to fertility
