How one should say a particular type of pain lie the labor pain is one of the most severe ones that a person / woman can experience in their lives?

I was wondering if my following sentences work in this situation:

  • Labor pains are some of the worst kinds of the pains.

  • Labor pains are one of the worst kinds of the pains.

If not, then what shall I say?

    You had it almost right in your description: "labor pain is one of the most severe a woman can experience in her life"

  • Your question would be better (and on-topic) if you stated what appears to be the actual issue (some of vs. one of), along with some research on these terms. As written this is just proofreading.

  • @user3169 I never ever want someone to proofread my sentences. Actually I want to make sure if a concept's equivalent in English (especially AmE) is natural or there is a gap there. This is what I am looking for. :)

You're quite close.

I think maybe it might be worth rephrasing.

One of the worst kinds of pain is caused by labor.

Although, if you want to stay with the same phrasing, you just need to make a few adjustments

Labor pain is one of the worst kinds of pain.

or

Labor pains are one of the worst kinds of pain.

Labor pains are among the worst kinds of pain.

Labor pains are among the worst pains.

Compare among the worst forms of child labor.
