  • 15 minutes with the first. I had a huge epsisotomy though. I wish my doc would have let me push longer before he sliced though. It took a full year for me to be able to have sex without it hurting.

  • 3 hours and then I had an episiotomy, the doctors also used those clamper things on the baby's head to pull him out. He also had a cone head
