how do i reverse her fear of pooping?

DD is almost completely pee trained, she is 33 months. I'm having a hard time getting her to poo though. She has had constipation problems since she was a baby and she says she's afraid to poop in the potty because it hurts. We're getting the constipation taken care of (she has a new found love of oatmeal and peaches) but she still just doesn't want to.
Any idea how to help her get past her fears?

DS was pee pee potty trained for A YEAR before he would go poop on the potty. He would make us put diapers on him and go hide in his room. My ped was awesome and told me that if he is going to poop in his diaper, make him do it in the bathroom at least. Then one day, about a week later, he told me he had to go poop. I grabbed the diaper, filled his potty chair up with water, and told him to poop in the water instead. He did! Ever since then he has been pooping in the potty and makes sure there is water in it first.
