  • I have had both. With my induction I was giving pitocin and contracted for 6 hours without any pain, they broke my water and the pain was pretty bad during the pushing...three pushes was all.
    With the natural delivery I had contractions all day, painful contractions for about 4 hours until delivery.
    The pain was the same at the end of each labor.
    It hurts, but I felt like it was only a few hours of pain for a lifetime of joy. I did all three deliveries without any pain meds.

  • Being induced is more painful. Artificial contractions are like a thousand times worse.

  • i've had one of each and I'd put them at the same. Contractions are contractions to me, whether they come on their own or not.

  • I was induced. It wasnt that painful and I was only in labor for four hours.
