Does a woman's 2nd baby typically come earlier? If so, what causes this?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Sometimes
But even if not actually earlier it's often a little quicker/easier (perhaps bad choice of words) for several reasons, one of which is that after the first vaginal delivery there is, as they say, a "proven passage".
