Why does our species reproduce in the way it does?

Why is sex pleasurable but birth painful, often resulting in the mothers death without medical attention. Why would a species have this physiology? Why has it evolved this way?

[@448067,Qwerty14] What country ?
[@760047,MarmeeMarch] Every country. I'm talking before they realised you should wash your hands. Women were lucky the death rate wasn't higher haha

Because it is good enough. Enough humans survive the process and become adults it is not a detriment to the species as a whole. Evolution is all about "good enough" because it is a blind process. If something works it works.

because science from our big brains that kill our mothers allowed those who would not have children to continue their line thus never removing any selective pressures
Life seems to be all about reproducing so one could argue it's pleasurable to encourage us to do so. The pain of childbirth... No clue. God? Lol

Because it just has. That's just the way we evolved. Pregnancy is stressful on the body, and birth is, too. I should know. Genes have gotten clever at reproducing themselves.

The fear of women dying from childbirth is massively over reported in fiction. In real life, before toxic doctors and disease ridden hospitals, very few women died from childbirth. Novelists often use it as a plot turn to get rid of unwanted characters but in real life, despite all the hysteria girls are taught, its quite rare.

Instead of asking why the specie has this physiology, ask why we have this fear psychology.
