I know that staying active and having chiropractic care weekly contributed to my short labor.

Re: Short Waterbirth at home

Thanks everyone!

Actually, I prefer a bit longer of a labor. I've had 2 very fast labors - both of my sons were 1.5 hrs start to finish. Fast labors like that just leave me no time to get into the right frame of mind, and I go pretty much insane when it comes time to push b/c the intensity is just more than I am prepared for... I prefer a bit longer of a labor - both my girls were about 2-4 hrs, and they were much more tolerable and I was able to cope much easier.... I was very very very relaxed through my entire last labor (which was about 11 hrs prodromal labor + 2-3 hrs "real" labor), laughing and joking almost the whole time....

Hard to explain. But faster labor definitely doesn't always = easier/better labor!

Either way, we are happy he is here!
