That dreaded post birth bowl movement !!! It can be really hard to go the first few times after birth . You are sore and sometimes have stitches and those muscles are so worn out from the pushing . Its hard when you get constipated too . Lots of fluids are important and if they gave you stool softeners make sure to take them . Try to eat high fiber foods and lots of fruits and veggies . If you need a fiber suplememnt may help also .
