2 and a half hours, all natural. Her hand was in her mouth. I tried the rib, hands and knees, laying down with my legs literally behind mi head, then finally pushed her out standing up.

Quoting [JadeLee]:" Woah crazy! Did you do anything differently?"


First I had an epidural and labored in a hospital bed. Second I labored at home and had no drugs. Got to the hospital less than an hour before he was born. I ended up with a very severe tear, and 163 stitches with my first. I was determined to not let that happen again & it didn't!

1st baby - 2 hours
2nd baby - 1 hr 20 min
3rd baby - 30 min



It got easier with each baby for me, but that probably isn't the case with everyone. My second baby was the hardest and most painful birth. She had to be vacuumed out. She was stuck. It was terrible. Glad my baby having days are over.

3 hours. It took forever and they even had the surgeon ready to perform an emergency c-section, but he decided to try vacuuming her out first since she wasn't showing any signs of distress. The vacuum was successful, but I remember praying they would just cut me open. After 30+ hours of labor and pushing for 3 hours I was mentally and physically drained and was just ready for it all to be over with.

I pushed for 3 hours on every contraction with my first and then, after three hours and a vacume assist as well as the midwife trying to repostion the baby since he was sunny side up, he started to be at risk due to elevated HR and having a bowel movment and I had to be taken for emergency c section...I wish you the best on your next delivery
