Wow. This input was *exactly* what I needed. From hearing all your stories, I'm feeling more and more convinced that whether or not you experience a lot of labor pain is pure luck! Yes, there certainly seem to be ways to lessen the pain, if needed (relaxing, water, counterpressure), but I'm pretty convinced that "mind over matter" isn't really going to work if there are some true physical sensations going on that are tough on your body.

on the back of my hypnobabies cd case, there's some text for decoration. and one line promises "no pain for mommy." i think this really stinks, because if a mom experiences pain, the company will just say, "oh, you didn't practice enough" or something. but with back labor or a displaced tailbone, no matter how much you relax, it's GONNA HURT! sure, you can deal with the pain in different ways, and some of those ways could exacerbate the problem, but there's just no getting around the fact that sometimes birth causes stretching, movement or tearing that will cause pain. and to promise otherwise, i think, is very irresponsible.
