Screw science.

No labor pains! Just a weird sort of pressure. Such a lovely drug.

Off the record: for a c-section it is all about the mother's recovery period afterwards. It is long, protracted and VERY painful. It's major surgery, and they cut deep. And the scar lasts forever and is out front and visible forever, too. Not fun. And on top of it you now have an infant demanding the entirety of your day, and night, too.

Nope nothing regarding birth is a freebie.
