Re: Is there a way to prevent pooping while pushing? :(
Wow, that's the least of my concerns - I'm more concerned about dealing with the pain! - but then I don't have all those people in the room with me. It's my understanding that the pressure of the baby's head coming out squeezes the intestine's contents out as well, so if anything's in there, it's gonna come out. I was told that it happened during at least one of my deliveries, but I didn't care - I was too concerned about getting the baby out. Medical professionals are used to it, and if your family can't deal with it, don't have 'em in the room!
