  • Nope, not at all. It is actually nice. Like a walk in the park. That's why there are pain meds and epidurals invented for it.

  • It hurt like HELL! I went for 14 hours without pain medication and NEVER will I do that again.

  • with an epidural it is painless and easy. but generally giving birth is different for everyone.

  • yeah, it hurts.

    mine wasn't bad pain until my water was broken then all hell broke loose and I begged for the epidural or I was giong to throw up all over the dr.

  • It's painful but it doesn't last forever. I would say a 7, with the kidney infections I've had being a 10. I went drug free, stayed moving and plan on doing the same for baby #2. Just trust your body & find coping skills that work for you--squatting, rocking, shower/bath, humming & if you choose meds, know the risks.

  • i had fast labors. only about an hour or so of contractions and pushing each time. i didnt have an epidural. i went natural. and it hurt, but not too bad. i liked knowing what my body was doing and feeling the cues. it was pretty easy for me anyway.

  • or not at all?
    (Another option!)

    Actually, I didn't have hospital births with my babies, if you are looking to reduce pain, out of hospital birthing is a nice option to consider!

  • It was the worst pain I've ever felt in my life, but it was worth it. I did it without pain meds and would do it again without them.
