I'm not really a good one to be answering about things like this coz i have an elective C Section so no pains, no contractions & no labour :) I was worried about going in to labour though coz there was a good chance it could happen & once my daughter was out, i realised there was a higher chance of the labour coming on than i thought coz even though my daughter came out 9 days before her due date, she was over cooked & that meant her due date was actually set later than it should have been! Having said that, i was also worried & scared about the C Section, would i be able to feel it, would it all go ok, would they make a mistake or something else go wrong. You're right though, it is very common to worry about this & just make sure your friend knows there are things to help her with pain when she goes in to labour, all she has to do is ask. Make sure she has a birthing plan too - that way she'll kind of have an idea on how it'll go! Everyone is different with birth but she'll be ok as long as her partner is there for support :)

Well i think I would just be there for them and answer any questions she has. Just let her know that no matter what happens when it's a pain that is easily forgotten. The thing is I think all woman are a little worried about the labor but we all do it and we all get through it. Also everyones experience is different so it's hrad to tell someone what to expect, you can't.
