**UPDATE** July 25, 2017 (7:59): The exact difference in time varies from study to study. Epidurals have not been shown to lengthen the first stage of labor (some actually show that it decreases it) and studies regarding the effect of epidurals on pushing time have been inconsistent. Thus, the difference in labor/pushing time between mothers who have epidurals and those who don’t is not different enough for this to be a prime concern for a woman who is considering an epidural.
