In common signs, both the second and the first birth begin in the same way. This is a growing battle, between which the gap is shortened. But, of course, a woman with experience, the initial stage is easier to bear. Although the pain syndrome of differences, as a rule, no. Contractions are equally painful.
The first births are rarely short. They last 12 or at least 6 hours. When the future mother is stimulated medically, the process is accelerated. Second birth, as a rule, occurs faster than the first. But this, again, is the rule in which there are exceptions. Much depends on mother nature, heredity, stimulation of the generic process.
If a spurious woman gives birth to a child less than two hours, then such gynecological births are called impetuous. They are considered to be fast when the duration of the process is up to 4 hours. By the way, their total duration is the time from the start of regular labor until the appearance of the afterbirth.
What explains the fact that the second time to give birth easier? This is due to the fact, that the longest phase of labor - the opening of the cervix of the uterus - proceeds faster.
And in the second case, the feature is that both the internal and external pharynx opens, and the cervical canal is shortened and smoothed in parallel.
As for the birth of the afterbirth, the second time it happens faster, that is, the interval between the appearance of the baby and the end of the birth process is shorter.
Also, the general trend is that the third, fourth births occur in mothers easier than the previous ones. Sometimes mothers of many children give birth to their next child even at home, before they have time to get to the maternity hospital, this process takes place so quickly. After all, the birth canal is ready for the upcoming changes, like the woman herself.
But it is worth noting that the second birth will be more easy, if the break between them and the first is small. Usually it's about five years old. If the gap is long, say ten years, then everything can be exactly the opposite.
When the gap between births is less than two years, usually women suffer from anemia, they have a fetus hypoxia, that is, oxygen deficiency, which slows down its development and growth. In this case, the pathology of fixing the placenta can also develop, because the uterus endometrium has not recovered in such a short time. In childbirth it is fraught with bleeding and weak labor.
As for the weight of the child in both cases, then, as a rule, the older child is smaller, and the younger child is larger. But sometimes it happens that the senior is born with a weight of up to five kilograms. And this does not mean that the younger will be bigger.
Against the backdrop of these general tendencies of the second birth gynecologists and midwives also note such situations that, because of fear, the mother gives up forgetting all that she was taught in courses for pregnant women. Natives sometimes think that they all know and are able, do not listen to the recommendations of medical staff, suggesting that they are tuned to the birth wave. It turns out that because of fear or self-confidence, such mummies do much wrong, which is fraught with breaks or other complications.
But for the third time, as evidenced by gynecologists, experienced mothers give birth most easily, because they clearly realize their mistakes in past births and fully trust medical workers. They listen to their advice and therefore give birth without breaks, complications and quickly.
If the first time the mother gives birth with complications, then the chances of their recurrence increase with each subsequent pregnancy.
