Yes it is painful, but the pains go off immediately after the arrival of the beautiful baby.

Not to worry, you need not fear it is just for a few hours and all will be a forgotten issue.

I dont pray for C/S not even for my enemy it is never the best.

Childbirth is painful but NOT the most painful thing.some "knacking positions" are more painful.rofl grin
The good thing abt the pains is that it quickly disappears the moment you hear the sound of your baby crying.lol

Childbirth is painful,but the pains ceases after the birth of the baby.

Depends on your pain threshold. Mine seems to be high as I didn't find it too bad. Just like Period pain except it's more intense and constant as you get closer to delivery. Saying that, I had pethidine + Gas & Air and labour was 4 hours. My sisters who were with me didn't believe it as I am the Tinuke in my family! But like other posters have said, once you've had the child, you forget the pain- assuming straight forward delivery, hence go on to have another!

The 9 months of pregnancy is worse than delivery itself as one doesn't know when the discomforts would stop. At least with delivery it shouldn't be more than 3 or so days before there's medical intervention! Unfortunately I had 2nd degree tear and spent 10 weeks recovering but still not as bad as being pregnant!

Nothing to be scared of sisters; I'm pregnant with my 2nd one now and would never have done it again if it was that bad. wink

Yes it is definately the most painful thing but also the most rewarding.

the pain is too much nothing is as painful as childbirth
after the pain comes the joy.

Childbirth is painful but bearable. It only gets worse when ur contractions stretches for a long time but once d baby pops out u'l be jst fine.

the pain varies depending on the woman, some women have it easy, while for others it is not something they can describe.

depending on where you reside, whenever it is your time you can always opt for epidural, it is the best choice, no pain at all ( now who wouldn't want that?)

my friend when she was pregnant she had epidural, and she was watching the movie Home alone, and she didn't know when the baby popped out!

Still some people still experienced a lot of pain even with 2 or 3 doses of large amount of epidural,it depends on individual pain threshold, And some will have it and fell so numb they will not be able to push.My advise is for the poster to go for birth classes,review all the options avaiables for yuo to deal with the pain,choose the one that suites you and the baby most,good luck.

If it is so painful, how could some women deliver their babies alone, bundle them into the dusbin and abandon them by the roadside, alone?

I think if it doesn't kill you it can only make you stronger.

I think the loss of a loved one is the most painful experience you can possibly have.
