Why do humans...as opposed to other animals...seem to have such a difficult time giving birth?
Ive seen various animals giving birth to their offspring while happily eating grass or something.
Cant imagine my sons mother tucking into a Big Mac & fries while trying to force him out through her legs...

Humans are seen to be the pinnacle of evolution in terms of intelligence etc so just why are we so pained by childbirth?

thanks.
