Re: Fasting/laxatives day before c-section?

the nurses at my hospital told me full fat whole milk does wonders to get things moving. I did follow their advice and take Colace and I did not end up having issues.

Everytime I sat down to nurse I drank a glass of whole milk.

I personally would not fast because I too wasn't allowed to eat for a while, until passing gas. I had my C/S on a Tuesday and didn't eat until Thursday late late afternoon. I was so hungry. I can't imagine fasting the day before.
