We soon start TTC our third and final child. I really want to do natural childbirth either at home or a birthing center because with this being my last child I want the full experience pain and all. What I am wondering from those with experience is natural childbirth generally easier with 2nd or later pregnancies since labor is usually shorter than the first time?

My first pregnancy I had early epidural and felt nothing for most of labor and the entire birth. My second pregnancy I got to the hospital only 1 hour before giving birth so they had barely gotten the epidural started when I needed to push so this time I felt a lot more than the first time and it was quite painful. So if my third labor is shorter than the first two I am thinking that I can handle going all the way natural this time.
