    On QI (i think) they said the size of your feet is relative to your pevlis size, similar as the length of your arm is the same as your foot size. Anyway im a shoe size 10 and had two very easy quick labours. 1st 8lb 15oz in under two hour 2nd 8lb 6oz 5 hour but only three minutes from waters breaking.
    2nd baby had wet lung due to my pelvis not sqeezing the water from her lungs enough, so this makes me think is it true and i have a larger than normal gap explaining the easy labours with little pain?

    Anyone else have something similar?

    If its true it makes all the bullying worth it! x

    I'm a size 7. My first baby was born breech and I had about 9 hours from waters breaking to birth, but 2.5 weeks early, weighing 6lb 6oz. My second labour was only about 4 hours and bubba weighed 8lbs. Think I might need to get my skates on this time round! xxx

    My mil's midwife told her this when she was pregnant with my husband! I'm a size 9 and wanted to see if it was true. I didn't go into labour in the end so can't comment.
    However they did try and break my waters which was excruciating! So not so sure if its true.

    Size 4, horrifically long labour, long delivery as well (I was pushing for almost 2 hours) but I got him out in the end and didn't have a single tear / graze or need any medical care in that area. In-fact my minnie was the only thing that didn't hurt after labour???

    xxxxxxx

    I'm a 4/5 and had a 9lb12-er naturally in 23hours and then an 8lb3 in minutes on the loo :lol: I was always told growing up I had childbearing hips, but tbh I think I just held a lot of chub round them :lol: so for me, shoe size and pelvis didn't really follow I dont think! Although my foot is a perfect fit for my forearm :lol:

    hmmm, not sure I am a size 8 and had a 7lb11oz boy and tore after a rushed delivery........but then went on to have a 9lb girl completely natural with no pain relief at all!

    but.....I used to work with a lady who was very petite 5 foot tall with size 3 feet and she had 3 girls all between 10lb-10.5lb - completely naturally with no problems!!!!!!!!!
