i have never had kids of my own... but when me and friends who are now moms tell stories, they just leave me an impression of how hard it is to bear a child. not mentioning carrying the child for 9 months, but the delivery!! i know every thing is a labour out of love.. but physically, is normal delivery more painful than the cesarean one? since cesarean delivery, it will require time for wound healing isnt it? while at normal delivery, the pain is just one time and no more stitches to wait for healing..

I have one baby and when i gave birth to him,it was normal delivery but hello???it was very painful,from lobour to final delivery..still painful after giving birth because of the stiches made at my *****!But after all,as you've labour out of love..once your baby gives smile to you,pains vanished!..I think cesarean is no pain during delivery because you are given anaesthesea,but they said it has great effect on your body,your health.besides it's expensive!

I have 2 children, and a third on the way. I am one of the lucky ones that labor and delivery was a piece of cake. Of course, I had an epidural. I did not feel one bit of pain. My cousin just had her second child both were c section. She sailed through both fine as well. Yes, recovery was not easy, but with meds she was fine.

I already have 2 beautiful daugthers, I delivered them both normally. It was a scary, painful and fulfilling event of my whole life. When i saw first my dauthers in the nursey i was amazed and overwhelmed with joy and happiness that they came in the world safely. My experience through my pregnancy and delivery was unforgettable. Thanks God that my husband is always with me and supporting me all the way, and helping me when i have all kinds of ache(backache, headache, stomachache and etc....). My obgyne helps me a lot when i conceived my babies until i delivered them. It was a remarkable event in our life, me and my husband.
