I know I should be considerate when someone in pain. I try to put this fact it is the labor room people to be blamed really, the woman before deliver has labor pains and these people put the woman on pain killers and epidurals and reduc the pain. After the delivery when they are out of the labor room, they succumb to intense pain which is far less than the labor pains. If not the pain killers are given every woman shall experience the labor pain which is too unbearable

Is this your complaint? or your wife's? Anyways, tell her not to worry, it happens for a few days untill the uterus comes back to normal size. Even i had this pain last year after my delivery, it subsided in 10 days time. My doc told me not to worry, but report to her if i hav ebleeding and excess pain.
