Fear of pregnancy and fear of not loving my child

Tash - posted on 10/19/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi to all the moms,

I am not a mother myself but am seriously contemplating the option. I am 30 years old and I just got married a few weeks ago. I am currently undergoing psychotherapy for anxiety and panic attacks. I was an unwanted child and my mother never let me forget that.

Anyway, the therapy is going quite well and I have now started thinking about having a child. It is a scary thought as I don't know what the outcome will be. I know I am not my mother, but what if I give birth and then hate the child? What if after giving birth I realize I don't want children and I start hating it?

Please, if you can offer any advise, I'd appreciate it.
