Mom Gives Birth after 20 DAYS in Labor

To all of the moms who endured long, trying hours of labor pains, just think: it could have been so much worse.

British teenager Amy Buck delivered a preemie baby boy after being in labor for nearly three weeks, the Daily Mail reports. OUCH.

The first-time mom began contractions at 19 weeks, developed an infection, and despite being given medication in effort to delay labor, gave birth to Daniel Barwell, who weighed in at just 1 pound, 3 ounces.

"The average labor is about 12 hours long for someone having their first baby," London obstetrician told the Daily Mail. "The longest I've heard of was 48 hours."
