Hi there, I live up in Hastings and have 3 children and the labour has got shorter each time starting at 7 hours then reducing by 2hrs each time with my youngest being born within 3 hrs of my tightnings starting. I swear by a water birth for a first baby as I did and I had no stiches just abit of grazing from the stretching then it made it easier for the other 2 as everything had already stretched. I only needed abit of gas with the water and no other pain relief so when my daughter was born she was really alert and not drugged up like some when the mum's have tried most drugs available. I am not against drugs in labour but I am not normally a very tolorant person with pain but went in thinking I would only use them if I really needed them then didn't end up using any except gas. I hope that is helpful for you.
