It’s true that after you give birth, you don’t remember much about the pain. Even though I could tell you that I felt a burning sensation (similar to what many would describe as having a ball of fire go through my birth canal) moments before my newborn baby took her first breathe in the world, I didn’t think much about the pain.
Interestingly, while the science won’t back up the claim that women forget entirely, it does suggest that over time, many women remember labor and birth pain as being less severe than they originally recalled. And I believe it!
With that being said, there are so many thing about giving birth that many women don’t have a clue about.
