Would you say that childbirth is easier the second time round?
Yes my second was the easiest. I didn't have time for an epidural. The third time my son turned breech at 39 weeks so I had to have a c-section.
Mine was easier in the sense that it was quicker but with my first I had an episitomy so this made the pushing a bit more painful with my first. I'm expecting my third and have heard that it can be a bit of a wildcard!
If you get an epidural it's all easy but the second one is usually faster than the first. My second was the fastest of all five. I was in labor for an hour and a half. Almost didn't make it to the hospital.
It was for me also. I always kid my second son about being a true New Yorker (where he was born) because he was in such a hurry to arrive - about an hour and a half labor. My husband barely had time to wash his hands. My first was 6 hours, but somewhat more peaceful, except the transition. I didn't have an epidural with either.
My second was easier than my first... my fourth was the most difficult/painful. I think it's luck of the draw really.
I've given birth a few times. My second was easier than my first, but third more difficult than than my second, my fourth easier than all of then.. and so on. I do't think there is a rule, life happens
According to my Wife, yes, the second time was significantly easier. Her recovery was also quicker than the previous time.

I heard this statement the other day - "food poisoning is more painful than child birth". I, myself, thought I was going to die for 3 days after some bad seafood, however, I cannot relate to the pain during child birth.Any experiences you can share?
