This image is doing the rounds again. Here’s why it’s a hoax:

1. There is no such unit of pain as a ‘Del’. The closest unit is a Dolorimeter or ‘Dol’, and only measures pain on a scale of 1–10[1].

2. Bone breakage pain is subjective and also varies based on the type and location, whether it’s the Radius, Ulna, Femur, whether surrounding tissue is also damaged… it’s not as simple as a scale to measure them all equally.

3. The pain of drug-free childbirth varies widely. The pain can be increased by the mother’s pelvic shape, the baby’s position, not being allowed to eat or drink in labour, by laying on the back (lithotomy position), induction/augmentation, stress, fear and a range of other factors.
