Read the link, Stargate lol yes they have a lot of pain. They pass the fully formed baby hyena through their penis-like clitoris thingo... 18% of mothers die.

Chopped liver anyone?

The Maori tradition is to bury the placenta in the garden and plant a tree on it. That way the child will always have a link to the land.

Human birth is painful for the mother because of the size of the baby's head. Other animals baby heads are more in proportion to their size. Human baby's skulls are soft and deform during childbirth or they would not go down the birth canal, especially through the birth opening in the pelvis.

Most animals Star give birth lying down, the very few that don't are the animals that are prey for predators. Their offspring are able to run fast within a few minutes.

Oh and Tim, I had never heard of that Maori tradition. I love that, it is beautiful x

Tim.

Just catching up on this thread, I was going to say what Tim has said. Most animals do give birth lying down, it's just the prey animals that don't, but even some of these will if they feel safe enough. The standing up during birth is more of a survival thing. I have seen footage of animals actually running during birth because they have been spooked by a predator. But if you think of our domestic animals, dogs, cats, horses, sheep cows etc, they all give birth lying down.

I was also going to comment on the size of the babies head, evolution has made human babies heads basically too big compared to other animals, which obviously makes the birth a lot more difficult and painful.

Elders or midwives have attended births for an awful long time, there has been assisted births for an awful long time. It is not a good idea for a mother to give birth on her own, she should always have somebody to assist.
