Is Mary the woman clothed in the sun?

If Mary is the Woman Clothed in the Sun in Rev., then why is the woman having birthing pains? Pain in childbirth is a result of the original sin in the Garden of Eden, but Mary was born sinless, so why would she be experiencing these pains in Rev.? :confused:

Thank You for your help and May God Bless!
