Depends : In general, labor is shorter with second and third pregnancies but not always. The position of the baby, the size of the baby, how far along you are influence the length of labor. Some complications like gestational diabetes can also influence the length of labor as well.

Possibly: But more often labor with a second child is shorter but not in all cases.
