I was reading an article, when I read a sentence saying, His mother ... nearly died less than three years later during Mathers' 73-hour birth.

What does mean by 73-hour birth?

This isn't really a Biology question, it just means that Mathers took 73 hours to be born. If you need further explanation, I'd suggest trying English Language Learners – Rory M Oct 18 '13 at 11:02

I could find that topic related to Eminem's mother, Debbie Mathers-Briggs, who almost died delivering her first son(Eminem) at the end of a 73-hour labor or 73-hour birth. That "73 hour birth" means she was in labor(to undergo the efforts of childbirth) for "73 hours".
