Quick question that will be expanded upon later, Has your doctor or any medical professional ever talked to you about what each number on the 1-10 pain scale represents outside of the smiley faces you'll see posted on walls of the exam room?

Has anyone ever told you that an 8 on that scale is equivalent to natural (no pain meds at all) child birth?

Thanks in advance for your answers and opinions.
