September, 2016
Abstract: 

Tokophobia (fear of childbirth) may interfere with a woman’s occupational or academic functioning, domestic and social activities, and even relationships. This study introduced the concept of tokophobia into the American landscape, established a baseline prevalence of tokophobia among 174 American women between the ages of 17 and 45 who had not experienced childbirth, and identified tokophobic predictor variables and demographic variables for tokophobia.
