Doctor, please help me.

What do you do when your patient in labour keeps complaining that she's in pain? When the husband keep finding you every half an hour to tell you that his wife is in pain.

Painkillers given by the way.

What do you do? What do you do?

What do people back in the old days do when there's no painkillers? No labour inducer? No C-Section?

"Doctor, help me, it's so painful"
And me "Madam, it's normal. You're giving birth. It's supposed to be painful. My vaginal examination won't make your opening open any faster."

I tell you. Giving birth is scary.
