Average delivery time for first baby

The average length of labor for a first time mom is 12-18 hours long. Labor could be much shorter or even last a few days.

The average length of time it take to push out a baby is 1-3 hours. The average time for a first time mom is 2 hours.

Remember that these are just averages and there is a huge range or normal. Every single pregnancy and labor is different.
