Morphine has been given during labor for a very long time. They didn't just start giving it. I think she means that they are no longer giving Nubain, but are giving Morphine in its place.

Also--on the 2nd labors go faster thing, of course it's not true for everyone (as everything else, lol). I was the 2nd born. My mom was in labor with my brother for 12 hours and with me for 39 hours. YIKES!!
