How do I avoid pooping during labour?Pregnancy Gynaecology
I heard from my friends that a lot of them pooped during labour. Why is pooping during labour so common, and how do I prevent that from happening?
Bearing down in the second stage will result in you pooping if your rectum is full. To prevent this from happening you can consider having a enema. This is often administered by the nurses when you do present in early labour at the hospital. An enema is safe and it doesn't hurt.
