Hi everyone a topic that goes hush!
So discussing the birth of my previous two with my hubby and the topic came up pooping during my labour and after 4.5 years he's only just told me that yes I did poop a little in my second labour and that's because I was pushing the right way. Apparently I didn't poop in the first because I had a episiotomy. Made things slightly easier yet sorer down there.
So I could have felt embarrassed but I actually don't its a natural function during labour and because we are so focused on getting baby out safely we don't even notice.
The doctors and nurses have seen it all before.
They tell you to bear down like going the toilet.
So I'd like to thank my hubby because for a long time he hadn't said anything because he wasn't embarrassed and said I shouldn't have been either you delivered our beautiful baby girl and that was the only thing I was concentrating on that day and that I did amazing and I shouldn't worry about the third imminent arrival in 9 weeks time if you do poop it's because your pushing your baby out the right way.
