  • Mine birth and labour was not quick at all…over 40 hours!

  • My first was posterior and I was in labour for just under 7 hours and pushed for an hour and 15.

    My second was 2 hours and 44 mins, 3 pushes and he was out

  • I am pretty lucky with my little one went in hospital at 1030am and bub born at 1149am . Cant complaint!

  • My labour was induced and lasted several hours.

  • First labour 12 hours. Was horrible. Second was 2 hours 15 minutes from when they started a drip to induce me. Fast and hurt so much but heaps better recovery

  • long, painful and uncomfortable all 3 times!

  • Many have shorter labour for 2nd baby- then shorter for next ones. A friend of ours had 4 babies. Her labour got longer with each baby she had.

  • Labour was 20 hours from first contraction but only 6 hours active and 45 mins pushing. I had lucky to have a spontaneous labour so managed to go pain relief free until the last 1.5 hours.

  • my first was induced and ended up being around 8 hours but he was also stuck and required forceps in the end.
    My second was also induced and labour in total was 1.5 hours, natural birth. Will be interesting to see what my third will be like, I’m hoping for a water birth this time :)

  • My labour was induced but the actual pushing was only around an hour and a half.

  • t was not quick with my first time but with the second one it took only 3 hours.

  • 1st pregnancy & labour was 13hours, natural. It wasn’t as bad as I thought. I can’t wait for the next one!

  • 10 hours, I think about 2 hours “active” labour.

  • Both of my pregnancies so far we’re not quick, at least 12 hours for both.. I’m hoping 3rd time around I get one that’s a bit quicker. It’s exhausting but worth it!

  • Cravings were fairly normal too.
