    Pregnancy and childbirth are an exceptionally vulnerable time for a woman’s mental health. Anxieties are normal, but sometimes extreme pathological fear can take hold and affect daily functioning.  This panel discusses research on tokophobia – the fear of childbirth – and supporting women post-partum.
