How long did your labour last?

How long did your labour last?

It's interesting to hear how long everyone's labour lasted. As a new mum you don't know what is normal and what to expect.

My labour lasted 3 hours and I was pushing for about 30 minutes. Thats from when I first felt pain. I had my baby within 8 minutes of arriving at the hospital. On arrival they found that my baby was breech. Luckily all was ok and I gave birth naturally with no pain relief to a healthy baby girl.

It would be lovely to hear other peoples birth stories so feel free to leave a comment or email [email protected]

All 3 of mine were different. The first two I went naturally, the last I was induced. My first was 4.5 hours of labor, the second was 22 hours. The 3rd was 3 hours. Being induced sucked alot but the labors were more intense for sure. Luckily I never had to have a c-section and all of them were vaginal births.

My son was 3 weeks early, and I went into labor on my own....78 hours total, plus 1 1/2 hours to push, no epidural. Sucked! But the outcome.....WELL WORTH IT, I'd do it a million times for my baby boy!
