  1. labour pains

    Labour pains refer to the intense cramping or contractions experienced in the abdomen, back, and pelvic region during childbirth. They occur due to the tightening and relaxing of the muscles in the uterus as it works to dilate the cervix in preparation for the baby to pass through the birth canal. These pains can vary in intensity, frequency, and duration, and are often considered a natural part of the childbirth process.
