Two and a half hours

Maddy shares her labour story with theAsianparent.com

My water bag burst at home at 12 midnight. We drove at a slow and steady rate to the hospital as doctor shared with us that the average labour time is 8 hours. I could still chat with my husband along the way. But by 130 pm, I was in pain but the nurse refused to give me epidural as I was 8 cm dilated.

Thank God by 230 pm, my daughter was born! No one told me that it was this painful!
