I think with home births in general labor is shorter, even for 1st time moms. You are in your OWN environment, you can deal with the contractions without the added stress of being in the hospital and having to deal with annoying doctors and nurses, etc.

A lot of women progress very quickly and just fine on their own, but as soon as they get to the hospital their labor stalls. Then of course you just HAVE to have pitocin...and it goes downhill from there.
