DS - 2 hours 45 minutes. I had an epidural so didn't feel a thing. Needed 5 stitches.
DD - 3 minutes. No pushing what so ever. I just focused on my breathing and she birthed herself. It was magical. No tears or grazes.

From memory which is a bit fuzzy.
1 - 20 mins
2 - 5 mins but tore me to shreds
3 - 10 mins
4 - 5 mins
5 - 30 mins than told not to push as he was face presentation after a few minutes of trying hard not to push he popped his head with no pushing and 1 push for his body.
6 - way over a hour. Don't remember how much longer but it was horrendous. I had a allergic reaction to a drug given to me and other complications than I rather not get into right now.

DS1: half an hour, hard work but no pain.
DS2: 11 minutes, incredibly painful but easier, oddly. Up until then I'd been managing the pain quite well.

3 and a bit hours, flat on my back. Horrendous. Contractions were a walk n the park compared to that!

DS was 2 pushes so just under 5mins I had prepared myself for it to take a while but he just popped out, contractions didn't hurt during it was actually a relief to be able to do something, the burning ring of fire however was horrid!

2 hours with dd with absolutely no descent. A year later and I'm still suffering the side effects. She had to be assisted (forceps and vacuum) and once she was out the knob on said there was no way her huge head would have fit through my pelvis unassisted. Thanks for that, ob.

Almost 2 hours for my first. I had a water birth so can't remember crowning being too painful though and I didn't tear, just a small graze.

I've only had 1 natural birth which only took 3 pushes and out she came face up so about 5minutes. I was actually waiting to go in for a c/s when they lost her heart beat and realised she had completed crowned and was coming out. I couldn't feel a thing with my epidural.

Fast and easy with both births.
Pushing stage for both were around the 3-5 minute mark, no tears, no stitches. I had an epidural with both but while I felt no pain I still had enough feeling to push with contractions.
I can't believe some women have to push for hours, how exhausting!
