Tokophobia: best practice toolkit

The pan-London perinatal mental health network’s fear of childbirth (Tokophobia) and traumatic experience of childbirth best practice toolkit.

This toolkit offers best practice guidance about identifying and treating tokophobia. It draws on the current evidence and recommendations of a group of experts in the field.

We would like to thank all the many people who have contributed to this toolkit in order that it can reflect the voices of women with lived experience and the realities of working in Maternity and Mental Health Services. In particular, Rebecca Webb and Susan Ayers at City, University of London, conducted systematic reviews of the literature.
