Water birth TMI ? 624582 Neilton, Washington 9312 posts
2nd Feb '13

For those of you who have had a water birth, did you shit in the water? A water birth seems appealing to me for our next and the only thing I can't get over is possibly shitting in the water and what if it's not solid? Then if you do shit yourself do you have to drain the water and fill the tub/pool back up?



If you don't want to come out and say it I added a poll option for privacy. :)

I havent had a water birth, but i have watched a lotttt and havent seen them poop themselves. Most of the women had clearing of the bowels earlier before they got in. You can always keep a mini fishy net to pluck any chunks out :D

Well that's good. Were you told what would happen if you did? I don't know if you gave birth at home or in a birthing center, but would you/they have had to drain and refill?

OMG! That is exactly what I envisioned if I did then I'd have to yell for DH to get the net. :lol:



I'm not trying to make fun of anyone so I hope no one gets offended, I'm just curious.

I don't think I'd consider it much of a concern. Out of 4 kids, I've only pooped once.

It wasn't something we discussed. I've always read if it's solid they just scoop it out and go about business. Not sure about diarrhea.

However, I did just read on something I found on Google that even the not so solid stuff can be gotten out with a sieve.

I've never shit, an never had a water birth.



But the thought I can't get out of mind now, is cuddling your baby moments after birth, turning to look at your SO and being greeted rather with a floating turd at your shoulder.

Okay then, I guess it's still just poop.

Haha! I decide to spare BG with the convo that my friend and I were having about the "what ifs" of pooping during a water birth, but I was telling her I would die of embarrassment if we video taped it and a huge turd floated by during a close up of the baby in the water.
