It is possible for someone who goes into natural labor with GAD go completely mad or lose their mind after the experience due to the pain?

Very unlikely: That is very unlikely, but since you are afraid of it - it's important.

They can refer you for support therapy and be prepared for offering you help in labor. Know as much as possible and you'll feel more confident. It really can be well-handled if you can trust your folk. Best! ...Read more
