  • * Are you asking about natural births (spontaneous, without force-meds-induction) ?

    My first labor was induced so not a normal example; it was 16 hours.

  • Not exactly sure . . . my MIL told me I was in "early labor" at about 5-6 pm. I was very uncomfortable until my water broke at 5 minutes to 2 in the morning. That's when regular contractions started. I think it was about 2-3 hours until the doc discovered that my baby was breech and I needed a C-Section. My son was born about 7:15 am.
