14Will I Do #2 During Labor?
One thing that is always embarrassing to talk a out is a bowel movement. Yes, everyone poops. But that does not mean that everyone needs to talk about it. As it turns out, one of the most common fears of pregnant women is pooping during delivery. Yes, it can actually happen, but it
is nothing to be afraid of.
If a woman's bowels are full, she could poop during delivery because the rectum is underneath the uterus. However, doctors say that women need to be aware that giving birth is not a public event. The people that are there in the delivery room are there to support the mom, and will not care if the mom poops. Also doctors and nurses certainly will not care because they have seen it all before.
