The other post about people looking forward to delivery got me thinking. I heard a doctor on A Baby Story say once that women over 5'8 tended to have faster deliveries. I'm just under 5'11" and only pushed 15 minutes with my son. This made me curious about everyone here! Any other amazons out there?

I'm almost 6' exactly. Even though natural childbirth is never exactly "easy" I didn't have a really bad time with any of them. My sister is 6'1" and she had an easy time with her first, hard with her 2nd. I'm always amazed to hear stories of these little bitty women having great big babies... I don't know if being tall helps, but it certainly can't hurt!

I'm 5'8 and didn't push for that long with my first! So I guess it's true.

I'm 5'5" and once I get past 3cm, I go fast. One of my kids was almost born in the hall on the way to the OR. My last, the doctor was called and he didn't make it in, and one of my babies was born with no one there. She was born en caul too.
