When I was expecting my first child, naturally I had the same questions that all first time mothers have, and I asked my ob if labor was painful. He replied that of course it was, that's why it's called labor pains.
I expect that the saying about forgetting is because you love the baby so much that the love dims the previous pain. Either that or that you are so busy with the new baby that you don't have time to think about the pain! LOL!

I remember all too well. I was induced, wanted to go all natural, after 20+ hours of horrible labour (thought I was going to die) I had a c-section. And yes, I had a midwife and a birthing room and a warm tub and a big bouncy ball, and breathing techniques and the whole nine yards. It was tough for me. I couldn't walk or pick up my baby without help. I also had infection and alot of scar tissue that made recovery over a month long. I couldn't sit up in bed and walking to the mail box alone would make me so exhausted I had to rest. Add an infant and postpartum depression, and colic and damn. I can't even believe I did it all over again. i know there are women that had great birthing experiences...i was not one of those.
