Mum of three admits she is “addicted to labour”.

“What do you mean, you’re addicted to labour?” asks news.com.au reporter Angie Boustani.

Lana, 26, tells NEWS , she is totally addicted to labour and childbirth and would do it over and over again if she could.

“With my first, when my water broke, the excitement kicked in but I was so nervous at the same time,” she says.

“You get to the hospital; it’s like a movie. You’re rushing, there are nurses, and it’s a whole new experience. You get into the labour room and it all begins. You hear women from a distance, screaming and shouting and you start freaking out.

“When it happens you’re in so much pain that the feeling of the baby coming out actually feels good.

“During my first experience I was in labour for eight hours, natural birth, only took happy gas. The feeling was like nothing I’ve felt before and I loved it.

“I love labour but I hate pregnancy. My back hurts, I can’t sleep on my stomach and I can’t walk.

“I want the labour without the pregnancy. It’s the thrill of it, it’s exciting.

“The water breaking, pushing the baby out, it’s all amazing.”

Most Women Don’t ENJOY Being in Labour

Obstetrician Dr Ric Porter tells NEWS, “there are morphine related hormones that can be released during labour that can make a woman feel a sense of relief. Most women are incredibly satisfied with the outcome after going through labour but it’s not often women actually enjoy the feeling as it happens”

“It’s fair to say my husband was in more pain than I was in the delivery room,” Lana jokes.

“There has always been talk and suggestions that some women have orgasms during labour. There may be a certain sense of release and muscular relaxation which is possibly why this comparison is made,” believes Dr Porter.

Lana says “If kids weren’t so hard I’d have 10 of them. I might have another one in a few years time just so I can experience labour again. I don’t want to do the whole pregnancy but I want to go through labour again.

“I feel bad to say I love it because I know some women go through hell in labour but I really love labour.”

We recently shared another Mum’s story who first experienced an orgasm during the birth of her third son.

A study in the journal Sexologies, finds that midwives report witnessing orgasms in about 0.3 percent of births.

  • I kind of understand in that I despise being pregnant and prefer the labour over the 9 months of pregnancy, cant say I love being in labour though!

  • I kind of get where this woman is coming from. I had an exhilarating 2nd labour (after a not so enjoyable first birth). After number 2, I couldn’t wait to do it all again.

  • Wow, she has got to be a rarity. I had a couple of kids so labour didn’t put me off having more then one child. But it’s not something I enjoyed

  • IVe given birth four times and although they all hurt more every time as the labour was shorter and pain greater but I understand the “excitement” and euophoria of giving birth and labor itself. (Never experienced an orgasim during labor though)

  • Maybe she should become a midwife.

  • I had a three day labour- on and off- as my contractions eased and started again, it was pretty horrible. But I know what she means, when you actually push your baby out, you have this great rush of feelings that overwhelm you with utter happiness and fulfilment. You automatically feel amazing and forget the pain that you went through, it’s a really amazing experience that I had with both my daughters!

  • sure it’s a relief but i don’t think i’d become addicted to it

  • I wonder how many babies this lady has had. She makes the labour sound easy.
    Maybe she could be a Surrogate Mother
