People don’t really talk about labor pain
I spoke to some women who had already had children. I found it interesting when they said that it’s different to other pain because you know it has a purpose. In the end, something good comes of it. That made sense to me.
In my experience, people don't really talk about labor pain. It’s kept a bit secret. People would often say "It was pretty bad" or "I don't want to go into it." Beforehand I thought I’d get more anxious as the due date got closer. But that wasn't the case. Somehow I kept getting calmer. I just thought: "It will be okay."
