No way to predict

Labor can be as sort as a few hours or as long as a few weeks. Some women in labor never progress or labor stops and they need a c-section. The position of the baby, the position of the mother and many other factors play a role into the length of labor and the length of pushing. There is no way to predict how long labor will last or how long a particular stage of labor may last.
