Amniotomy does result in about a 55% reduction of pitocin use in multiparous women, a small (5 minutes) decrease in the duration of second-stage labor in primiparous women, and about a 50% overall reduction in dysfunctional labor--ie, no progress in cervical dilation in 2 hours or ineffective uterine contractions (SOR: A, large meta-analyses of RCTs and a single RCT with conflicting results).
In further multivariate analysis, adverse maternal outcomes associated with gestational weight gain above that recommended by the guidelines included hypertensive diseases of pregnancy for any parity (aOR, 1.84) and increased risk of cesarean delivery in nulliparous and multiparous women (aORs, 1.44 and 1.26, respectively).

The aims of this study were to prospectively describe the effect of pregnancy and delivery in women without clinical signs of anal sphincter tears, on endosonographic morphology of the anal sphincter and on anal sphincter pressures, and to highlight any differences in these findings between nulliparous and multiparous, Black African and Indian women.

While presently in an office-based setting, back in my inpatient practice days I would order oxycodone plus acetaminophen for 1 to 2 days postoperative cesarean delivery, and only 1 day after normal spontaneous delivery if the patient had a large perineal repair or multiparous involution pain.
The percentage of multiparous women also increased from 17.0% to 30.3%, indicating that after implementation of the two-child policy, many women who previously had no plans to have an additional child during their childbearing years chose to have a second child.
