Did your hospital make you poop before you could go home?

After delivery, that is.

  • No they just wouldn't give me food until I passed gas. I could feel my ingestines girgling but nothing was coming out. I was so freakin hungry I just lied. :P They gave me a stool softener everyday and just told me to call my doc if I hadn' pooped in 4 days. =P

  • Yup, mine did! They at least gave me a suppository to help me out though lol I just thought it was strange because I didn't have to do that after the birth of my first child

  • Nope. 5 babies, 1 hospital, 1 midwife, didn't even ask if I pooped. I did with 1 while still in - thanks to an apple I snacked on! The rest required stool softeners & Milk of Magnesia in the privacy of my own home.

  • I don't remember them giving me that stipulation with my daughter. I remember getting checked for hemorrhoids (none, thankfully). But not being asked if I pooped...

  • With my first they said I needed to but didn't check on it, thank goodness. With my second they didn't even tell me to. Both were more concerned with me walking and being able to pee.

  • when i had my 1st baby they would not let me go until I pooped and the thing was her dad had to work at 5pm...so he was really antsy because i wasn't doing it and he wanted us home and to spend time with us before he went to work...so finally I lied about it.
    with the other 3..they didn't ever ask about it.

  • Our hospitals don't do that anymore. I had a major surgery and they just sent me on my way. They want you out as soon as possible.
