Women shouldn’t feel embarrassed when they can’t control
their defecation on the delivery bed.
The closer you are to the labor date, the more nervous,
anxious and curious about what happens behind the delivery room will be. Let’s
try to find out the little secrets below to be less shocked like a fish out of
water at that great time of your life, shall we?
Mothers will have to come back home
You have found out a lot of info about the signs of labor
pain and been very happy to get to the hospital when they see the contractions
start to appear, but the truth is that there’re lots of women pregnant who are
recommended to return home after that. In the first stage of labor pain, some
women will have such kinds of contractions although the uterus doesn’t have any
signal of changes, and you may have to wait up to 2 or 3 days to actually get
into the delivery room. When you get to the hospital with that kind of
contraction, you will be recommended to get home and return when the
contractions are more intense and the intervals between the contractions are
closer. Of course, in this case, you can’t avoid the disenchanted and
disappointed feeling when you’re eager to welcome your baby.
It’s possible that you don’t see the doctor anywhere
Maybe the first time you get into the delivery room, you may
feel extremely surprised and nervous because, at that moment, you don’t see the
doctor by your side. The truth is that a doctor will be there by your side
since you get into the delivery room until your childbirth. With a huge number
of pregnant women in the hospital at present, you can’t expect for the
appearance of the doctors until you’re ready for pushing as they definitely
have to care more about you than other pregnant women who are about to give
birth. But, it doesn’t mean that you will feel lonely, lost by yourself as a
group of experienced nurses will always be there with you and notify the
doctors by the fastest way when realizing that your time has come.
The truth is that

Depending on the hospital you choose for your journey of
delivery, you may have a fluid infusion through your vein during that time.
Some hospital gives pregnant women fluid infusion as an indispensable thing to
avoid dehydration and help to skip a step when you may need painkiller such as Pitocin,
a type of synthetic hormone that helps you to stimulate the uterine
contractions. Sometimes you will have a fluid infusion after giving birth to
your baby in order to take the placenta out faster and more easily. If you’re
afraid of pain and don’t want to have an infusion, you can totally require the
hospital about this. Even when you have infusion which supports your delivery,
you should walk gently, avoid sitting still to let the baby turn to the most
favorable position when being born and make pushing more easily.

You can’t control defecation
Unfortunately pushing your stool out during delivery is the
most ashamed and embarrassed things that women having never been through this
are most anxious about. These kinds of situation can still happen to you
because of the following reasons: the muscles used to push the baby out are
exactly the same muscles you normally use for relieving yourself. Therefore, if
you’re pushing correctly, it’s likely that you will push out unwanted things.
In fact, most pregnant women have been through this on the delivery bed. You
shouldn’t worry or embarrass about this. Professional doctors and nurses will
never judge you or criticize you for doing things you can’t control, and will put
the birth of your baby as a priority.
