  • take an enema first. They used to give them at the hospital but now you may have to do it yourself. Ask your doctor if you should do it or they do it before delivery

  • You might not. I didn't.
    Enemas are dangerous sometimes.

    check with your doctor first.

  • You don't. It doesn't happen to everyone, and really it will be the last thing on your mind. I have had 5 kids, and it has never happened, although I was way too busy being in labor to care one way or the other. LOL :)

  • You don't. It is not possible.
    Women do it allll the time. It is an extremely normal part of birth...

    Care providers are used to it, women have to learn to be, too.

    One thing that is abnormal and unnatural, is strangers attending a laboring mom. That might make a mom feel self-conscious.
    Historically, (and still through most of the world), moms-to-be are attended by close family/friends~ other women, often mothers themselves. That relationship helps to reduce the awkward-ness.

  • In all I don't think you can stop yourself from pooing. Seriously, I wouldn't worry about it one bit. Chances are, you wouldn't even know if you did or not uless you were to ask.

  • It's likely you won't even know if you do. They are really discreat about it. It's a normal part of childbirth. And like Amber said it WILL be the last thing on your mind.
