    #1 - about 20mins (on my back) not too much pain but crowning was pretty full on with the burning ring!

    Over an hour. It was way better than just contractions, felt like i was channeling the pain into something constructive. I didn't really know what I was doing for most of it, wasn't till dd dropped right down that I could actually feel what I was doing to make it more efficient.
    Crowning wasn't such an issue. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. But since I had been pushing so slowly I think it helped slowly ease my body into it.

    I have no idea with either of mine! It was all a blur. I dont think it was more than 20 minutes or so for each.

    It must have been at least an hour. Not painful except when it got to pushing out her head & shoulders.

    I was mostly squatting/on all fours, but it took that long because it went from me and DP on our own, midwife turning up, checking me, calling ambulance...then trying to push on a stretcher in an ambulance; not ideal.

    My first was 20 mins, standing using the bed (and hubby) as support and squatted with each urge to push.

    My second I sat on the edge of the bed, the shift put bub in the right position, pushing was involuntary and less than 4 minutes.
