There’s no doubt that childbirth is a beautiful and unforgettable experience.
It’s the wondrous moment that new life enters the world, when you first lay eyes on the wriggly little babe who stomped all over your bladder for nine months. It’s the moment you become a mother.
It also hurts – like, really hurts.
I came across this animation that shows in detail what goes on inside a woman’s body during labour and vaginal childbirth.
Seriously, I’m baffled that some people still view women as the ‘weaker’ sex. What a joke…
Was your birth experience more or less painful than you expected?
