Will I poop during childbirth?


Possibly, but we promise it isn’t a big deal. With all that pushing and pressure in your nether regions, just about anything inside will make its way out. The truth is, you probably won’t even know it’s happened, and the nurses will clean you up quickly. During delivery, you will be positioned on a disposable pad - the medical staff simply whisks the soiled pad away and replaces it with a fresh one. Anxiety about pooping on the delivery table is one of the most common concerns we hear, and undoubtedly the least important.

I hope that helps, please post any questions you might have!

Kind regards,
