What is more painful C-section or natural birth?

It is subjective as to whether a C-section or natural birth is more painful.

C-sections are performed under anesthesia, so there is no pain during the procedure. However, post-operative pain from incisions and surgical recovery can be substantial and last several days to a couple of weeks.

On the other hand, natural birth involves intense contractions and pain during labor that can last for several hours. However, some women report feeling more in control during a natural birth and there is no surgical recovery involved.

Ultimately, the level of pain experienced during either method can vary greatly from person to person.
