Cinderella – Sorry for my goof. Please be moichel.
OK, PBA, it was Rochelle, not me.
Musicaldiginity, I had asked how did it go for you and your class? Was it as you anticipated?March 23, 2012 4:50 am at 4:50 am #1157995popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Uh Ok. I assumed it was you because I was responding to that comment, and you responded back as if it was your comment that you were defending. But it is all the same, whomever said it.March 23, 2012 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #1157996HealthParticipant

I actually wasn’t there! I had a wedding that night and I had to leave early! But my friend said it lasted half a minute and it was a joke:)March 25, 2012 11:51 pm at 11:51 pm #1157999oomisParticipant
Popa — to make it clear, childbirth typically HURTS. A LOT. Labor is not only laborious, it HURTS. Think about a vise squishing your kishkes in from all sides, slowly at first, and then a crescendo of squeezing from inside out, with your entire midsection hard as a rock. It VERY slowly subsides after around a minute of this intense squeezing. Thumbscrews as torture devices were probably developed based on men observing the pain of women in childbirth.
So yes, it is excruciating. The epidurals (and I never had any in my five natural childbirths), can only be administered in the latter stage of labor, by which time the mother to be has been suffering a long time. And make no mistake, epidurals can potentially cause a sudden lowering of the mother’s blood pressure, they are not totally without consequence. It was for that reason that I persoanlly never opted to have them.
That said, the pain is totally worth it, to have that baby, and I would have gone through it a aixth time, if Hashem had given me the chance.
If men had to have the babies, our specie would be kaput.July 1, 2016 5:34 am at 5:34 am #1158000☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

If men had the babies, they would be women.
