Holy cow, those births are so over the top worst. pain. ever!
I'm not unduly freaked out by A Baby Story births. I can back seat drive those and clinically determine where things started to break down.
By I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant shows are way worse. I tell myself two things...
1. It seems so horrifically painful because the producers/directors are playing that up for effect. It's acting, not reality.
2. The women probably did have more of the fear/tension/pain cycle because they didn't know what was happening to them. Fair enough.
I've gotten judicious in watching these types of shows. I tape them and then watch the opening scene. If it seems like it's going to be traumatic, I delete without watching.
