Oh my,MAITA! Do you suppose there's such a thing as "vicarious" labor pains. Reading all these valuable hubs about pregnancy and giving birth is enough to give a great-grandma some, if so. Just reliving the memory can be quite an exercise! haha.

Seriously though - you are doing a magnificent job of covering every aspect and concern about the subject! Bravo!!
