And yet the easiest way to avoid childbirth pain is to not have a baby.

Well, if the choice to have a baby only involved "avoiding childbirth pain", then of course, I would have chosen not to have a baby! LOL

But, I wanted "babies", not childbirth pain; so in order to have the family that we had dreamed of, avoiding childbirth wasn't an option for me.

I agree that pain has many levels and dementions to it, but my question was to rate that pain (despite what the personal perspectives were), not how to avoid the pain altogether.

Now if anyone does know how to have a completely painfree childbirth, please, please, please let me in on that secret, because it was absolutely the desire to never go through childbirth again (no matter what way it may be) that was the biggest deciding factor of stopping at #4. (and I was done with pregnancies by that point too, but that's a whole other topic!!) :)
