The following is from The Birth Book by Dr. William Sears
"Pain is not intrinsic to normal labor-sensation is. Labor involves many new sensations for the first-time mother, but no woman should have to suffer while giving birth....To aim for a childbirth free of all discomfort is unrealistic. But to preplan an anesthetized birth for fear of pain may rob you of a valuable experience and wonderful birth memories."
