I think ALL pregnant women at one point and time during their pregnancy think”What if I poop while I’m pushing the baby out?!”. Chances are you will and that’s totally ok! It’s actually a GOOD thing. If you are pooping, then you are pushing in the most productive way!
But most women aren’t anticipating that first trip to the bathroom AFTER baby is here. Depending on your birth, you may very well encounter some pain and some trouble going number two. If you tore or had an episiotomy and needed stitches or if you’ve had a cesarean birth ,it is likely that you are going to be faced with opposition. You will likely think “Nope, I am never pooping again. Don’t care if I gain 10lbs, NOT going to happen. It hurts just thinking about it!”
There are ways to help make that first time (or several times) easier for you.
