    Default How long was pushing with your first and second

    Not pregnant yet but I struggled with pushing my first.
    It lasted total 2hrs and was exhausting. I assume long pushing stage is common for first but how did it compare with your second? Was it shorter or longer? Any tips for making t shorter.

    Half an hour for my first and about 2 mins with my second! No tips though..although I didn't have an epi the second time round so don't know if that made a difference?

    20 mins with my first, literally 30 seconds my 2nd (I stood up my waters broke and his head came out, 30 seconds later next contraction the rest of him came).

    Only difference is I had gas & peth with my first and was lying on the bed on my back.
