Will my second birth be easier than my first?

Whilst second and subsequent births are said to be easier than the first, it still depends on various factors such as the mental, emotional and physical state of the mother as well as the size of the baby and the birthing environment. Each pregnancy is different and while a second birth experience may have been relatively easy for some women, a third birth may be just as hard as the first. Some mothers have very easy first birth experiences whilst their second experiences have been difficult. Many factors can affect the perception of pain and the length of labour so rather prepare yourself for something a little more challenging than you expect, as opposed to the other way around.
