The thing about the pain of birth is that it's so completely different. There's a BABY that's being BORN. I honestly can't say whether my migraines or my experience of birth were "more painful" - I was, at points, begging for it to stop and saying I couldn't survive with birth, just as I've been known to do for migraines.
