Did Mary suffer during child birth?

Does the verse in Revelation about Marys labor pains show she had pain during birth? Or is it a figurative choice of words for the suffering she felt with her Son? Is there a definitive teaching by the Church or is it up to us to assess the truth behind this?

This link should explain the Roman Catholic Church’s understanding of the effects of Mary’s sinlessness on her labor and delivery. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by this link, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
