With my son I pushed for 15 minutes, 3-4 pushes. And he was a bigger baby, no tearing or cutting thankfully!
35 mins with my first and 10 mins with my second.
Maybe 10-15 minutes with my first and 5 minutes (if that) with my second.
7 hours that ended in a forcepts delivery. I'm hoping #2 will be much faster... :/
Quoting homes cool:" First I had an epidural and labored in a hospital bed. Second I labored at home and had no drugs. Got ... [snip!] ... up with a very severe tear, and 163 stitches with my first. I was determined to not let that happen again & it didn't!"
Whoa, you are AMAZING! Props on what you endured for #1 and your huge change with #2! I am hoping to go natural w/ my next and avoid being cut again. Any suggestions?
OP, I pushed for 45min with an epidural and unfortunately still had an episiotomy.

It was all about being able to move around when I needed to, and feeling comfortable during labor (for me was being in my own home.) I tried the shower, rocked on all fours, held onto the couch...whatever worked in the moment.
48 minutes with my first. One contraction with my second...so probably like one or two minutes, if that. I was already dilated and ready to push when we got to the hospital. 16 minutes from start to finish - checking in until holding her.. It was intense.
1st: 20 minutes
2nd: 2 hours but he was stuck in the posterior position and they ended up having to use the vacuum to get him out.
3rd: 20-30 minutes
1st- 23 minutes
2nd- due in 16 days
1st- pushed for an hour and a half
2nd- pushed twice that's it.
3rd- less then five minutes
had my daughter in less than 5 mins
1st one I probably pushed for an hour or so.
2nd and 3rd somewhere between 10 and 30 mins max.
1st & only one was about 25 minutes. I started pushing a little bit before 3 and had him out at 3:21.
