Question

This week I am answering a question submitted from Kim.  She says, “”You talk about urinating during labor, but what about going #2?  Does everyone poop during labor?  I am so terrified of going number #2 in the middle of giving birth, especially with my husband in the room.  Is there anything I can do to avoid going poop during labor?” – Kim
