14Number Two Will Probably Happen
Some women have heard rumors that they may defecate on the table, while they deliver the baby. Many mothers try to avoid this by emptying their bowels and trying not to eat anything around the time that they start experiencing contractions. For most women, pooping on the delivery table is

Since pushing out a baby is often compared to the act of pooping, pushing out the baby will push out number two along with it. As embarrassed as moms think they will be, it is often forgotten once they see their baby, if they realize they did it at all. Doctors and nurses are used to this, so do not worry!
