First Poop Panic

I read this article and giggled.  I always talk to doula clients, especially first time moms about the first poop and how nerve racking it is.  I always recommend they go out and buy a stool softener so they don’t have to “push” because it makes one and all nervous the first time after after having a baby.   Some like metamucil, but I like Colace.  You can get this at safeway, shoppers or where ever you shop.  I hope you can stay relaxed and let nature take its course, it’s nothing to worry about. 🙂

Happy bathroom break!
