How long was your labor and time spent on pushing out your first?

Just want to know so that I have somewhat of an idea on how long it may be for me because I know everyone is different.

  • i laboured for 24 hours and pushed for 2 hours before i caved to the c-section :(

    my second (i know its not helpful since this is, i'm guessing, your first) was about 12 hours of labour and half an hour of pushing

    getting an epidural slows things down and begins the cascade of unnecessary interventions, often leading to an otherwise unnecessary c-section

  • I was in labor for 24 hours 35 minutes and pushed for 2 hours. I almost had to have a c-section but he finally came! With my 2nd my daughter came sooo fast. I was in labor for 3 hours and 55 minutes and she was here.
