Twitter user @4ever_days recently started a debate about just how painful childbirth is – even though he didn’t plan on it!
The guy wrote: “Hello everyone! What’s the most physically painful thing you’ve ever experienced?”
The tweet received a lot of attention, and it opened the door for several horror stories and horrifying accidents. However, the one answer that kept popping out, again and again, was childbirth!
Hello everyone! What’s the most physically painful thing you’ve ever experienced?

Having a baby is one of the most painful experiences, and even though some things may seem worse, childbirth remains in the top most painful things one can experience. Is it a beautiful experience, though? Undoubtedly!
In this order
1. Childbirth 4 times at home one was 10.4#
2. Broken Ankle
3. Falling through a storm grate. 30 stitches 2 layers
4. Dry socket after a tooth pull
But really, emotional pain is the worst

Swear to God, I’d do the labor and delivery twice just to avoid the apocalyptic post-partum stage where I leaked from every orifice and developed mastitis! 😱

I’m with you. My son’s birth was a violent process. My friends were talking about their transcendent experiences and I felt I’d survived something brutal—and I had a sick baby. I had postpartum depression largely due to that, not hormones. It took a year + support to get over.

My second C-section opened when I got home (after 3 days in hospital). My husband had to “pack the wound” 2X a day for 6 weeks. Incredibly painful. Women should not be sent home day three after a damn c-section.
