Will it hurt, Doc?

A woman goes to her doctor who verifies that she is pregnant. This is her first pregnancy. The doctor asks her if she has any questions.

She replies, “Well, I’m a little worried about the pain. How much will childbirth hurt?”

The doctor answered, “Well, that varies from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy and besides, it’s difficult to describe pain.”


“I know, but can’t you give me some idea?,” she asks.

“Grab your upper lip and pull it out a little…”

“Like this?”

“A little more…”

“Like this?”

“No. A little more…”

“Like this?”

“Yes. Does that hurt?”

“A little bit.”

“Now stretch it over your head!”

  1. OUCH!!! That just confirms that not ever wanting children was a good idea!

    Feels like pooing a watermelon! Unless you have an epidural and it’s just fine. Had one of each so I know which I’d opt for! Totally weird how you forget all once that wet bundle is put in your arms.

    It is pain with a purpose and not like a toothache or chronic pain. In fact for me, it was no different than the gut wrenching side splitting pain I put up with every other month of my adult ‘lady’ life. TG for the menopause!

    Thanks ladies!

    I say TG for the gynaecologist who had the skill to put right the damage done by childbirth. Hence the cartoon.

    Ominous silence from the men so far 😉
