Advice? Please?

My girlfriend recently has been having a lot of nightmares about me dying during birth. Now she’s scared the **** of me and I am terrified of labour.I don’t want to orphan my newborn.

    It's natural to be afraid but you need to put it all in perspective. Last year there were more than 3,500,000 births in the US and only 700 women died from complications. If you're getting good medical care the chances of you dying are EXTREMELY slim.

    Rest assured, if there are complications while giving birth, a C-Section has saved MANY lives of women and their babies.

    It would be a good time for her to take out a lot of life insurance on you.  It could have far better odds than the lottery.
