In brief: By the situation...

The pain feels more or less the same.
The only way to be sure is to know what medication you are being given. For example, iof you have been given pitocin (oxytocin) to induce labor, your pain is induced. If your water bag breaks in WallMart and you start having labor pain, it is natural labor pain. There is no other way to know. Best wishes!
