How much does labour hurt?


Labour can hurt a lot. It isn’t “uncomfortable,” or “intense,” it is painful. The good news is your body was made to do this, it doesn’t last forever, and there are lots of options available to help make it more bearable. There are various childbirth classes and programs that will train you to relax during labour and manage your pain naturally. If it becomes too much, epidurals and other medical pain-relief options are safe and very effective.

I hope that helps, please post any questions you might have!

Kind regards,
