I was induced with DS and didn't poop. I was certain I did, but DH said I didn't. He delivered DS.

Re: Is there a way to prevent pooping while pushing? :(

I'm so afraid of this happening! O well, I suppose it's normal.

I have no idea how to prevent it - not sure you can if you're pushing correctly and it needs to happen, it will!

It happened to me. I think it is bound to happen with the head coming down...there is nowhere else for the poop to go but out...

There's no guarantee it'll work for everyone, but when I delivered my dd, I was on all fours/kneeling and standing through the pushing phase and didn't poop at all. I wonder if leaning forward took pressure off the colon and didn't let any poop out? I did go a few hours before baby was born and actually was able to poop only ages hours after baby was born with no issues.

But maybe ask your care provider if they're comfortable catching baby in those positions? You can always try them out and see how they feel and try other things if you don't like them.

If you are pushing the way you are suppose to be - you poop. You have no choice. I don't believe for a minute that someone has not because I have NEVER seen someone not in Delivery.

I was pretty nauseous through entire labor - everything was completely cleaned out by the time I was ready to push!

I was worried about this too, but I'd agree with PP who said that by the time things get going, you won't care.

The OB usually has a towel over the anus so it is wiped off before anyone notices. Sometimes the patient's body will cleanse itself in its own.
