Moms that had Precipitous Labor

Precipitous labor is the medical term for labor that lasts less than 3 hours from the start of contractions to delivery. Precipitous labor is less common than latent or prodromal labor, and occurs more often in women who already have delivered a child. The intense contractions associated with a very fast labor can be very painful, and the pace at which the labor proceeds leaves no time to administer pain relief.
