Pain during childbirth: does it hurt too much?
One of the most common questions for women who are pregnant for the first time regarding childbirth is: is it too painful? I would love to ease your anxiety by saying NO, but the truth is that it hurts, very badly.
I am one of those strange moms who really enjoyed giving birth. It was an inescapable and incredible experience. That said, I would admit that it was really painful for me. I still remember grabbing my husband’s arm in a way that made it clear that I would hurt him if I had to. So, yes, it hurts. But it’s worth it.
Here are some images that capture the pain, perseverance and joy of birth that we are willing to share with you.
Finally, the contractions diminish, the thrust ends, and the rest and relief settles. You see your baby for the first time, and everything you’ve gone through is forgotten.
