    Now let's try having Obstetricians answer the questions, a lot of times women are misinformed because most people like to play doctor and that is bad. This doesn't mean that these women are not doing something important, they are doing something very important. I just think that most people don't get to talk to doctors before the time comes. We need more awareness, this is just one thing that needs to be done, but there's more that needs to be done.

    Ohh epidurals hurt but you can’t feel it because labour lol I had a lumbered puncture which is like an epidural but instead of putting a fluid into your spine it pulls out bone marrow from the spine it is the most painful thing in the world but you can’t feel it because the spine is distrusted so thank god for being temporarily paralysed lol

    Honestly so glad I had a c-section! Baby wouldn't turn so we scheduled it 2 weeks before due date... but the little one decided to arrive 5 days earlier. I was in labor for like 2 hours when we got to the hospital and by the time I was on the operation table my little girl LITERALLY had a foot out already... They later told me if I had arrived 10 minutes later they wouldn't have been able to get her through the side exit lol

    1:49 Let me tell you why me and my two brothers are c-section children My oldest brother had the cord wrapped around his neck like as many times as physically possible so I DC he didn’t have a section he would’ve died in my opinion not a great way to come into this world and probably not a great way to go out My other brother was a planned c-section not sure why I was a planned c-section considering both of my brothers were sections and the odds of me needing one in the end were high

      Well you could try to poop the before like some bottle water can make you poop, but to be honest it would be the last of your worries that day, you won't even know you pooped, and your boyfriend won't see it too since he will be by you side. I remember the midwife empty my bladder into a basin to make things go faster, I didn't felt anything because of the epidural and boyfriend didn't notice even if they told me and he was by my side!

    My considerable internet research has finally paid off and recognized with extremely good facts to exchange with my friends and the world, Medical Doctors and Dermatologists said (HSV 1 & 2, Herpes zosters) do not have a medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells. it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isn't an incurable virus! your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it can lay dormant in protected cells. your immune system is unable to remove it from your body. But with strong reactive herbal medication. It can get rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without any side effects. natural herbs kill the virus totally not just reducing the outbreaks. I just got my test result today after 7 days of using the herbal Medication, and it came out Negative to both HSV 1&2, I'm so delighted I recommend this to anyone suffering from herpes virus, You can get natural Herbal Medication from Dr. Aloha contact him through his email: Alohaherbalhome@gmail.com or WhatsApp +1(202) 871-3222.

I went back and forth to the hospital for two weeks in slow slow slow labor, and they wouldn't keep me unless my water broke or I was dilated to four neither happened so I was sent home and before the Dr left he said no worries I'll see you tonight, and at 11:59 pm on November 8 I went back to the hospital via ambulance, and I was at four cm and my water had broke but not all the way, so they had to finish breaking it, and then 8hrs of labor and then when I was at 10cm 6 pushes and bam she was here, but I tore diagonally and it has messed up my bladder!!! Oh and my milk never came in! So yay the miracle of birth!

    I had to have a c-section because my daughter was breech, they even tried an aversion and with two doctors they still couldn't get her to budge an inch. The procedure was pretty smooth, I got there around 9ish and went in at about 11:30. My husband had to wait until they sedated me, I was so skittish because I felt the first needle go in to numb the back, the second one was just sort of an odd pressure. What's funny is they had to manually let out my water (which was about 2 liters worth) and my husband said it was this massive "SPLASH" like someone had just dumped out a bucket of water. They had me staying for an entire week after I had my daughter. I was so grateful they let my husband stay the full 7 days with me, and every single day my mom and aunt visited us to help out because no one ever told me how bad it'd feel when those pain meds wear off, but honestly even with them it still hurt like crazy. I couldn't even roll over, using the bathroom legit made me cry, sitting up took two days, while actually getting up out of bed took three and none of it was painless. I was never in a diaper though, I guess thats just case by case or something (?) It took about a month for the surface level scarring to heal, most of the pain was gone by then but it'd be another three or four months for the muscles and nerves to heal. Anyone who says "a c-section is easier" is lying. It is not any easier than birth, a caesarian surgery is considered a major operation and only done when medically necessary.

    about to have my first baby in two weeks. the reality is nobody cares if you poop. the doctors have seen everything, went through it a million times. it doesn’t matter. it’s not really a big deal. i don’t find that the biggest concern while in labor and giving birth being if i poop when i’m fully exposed, bleeding, pushing out a whole baby. if i poop so be it, straining that hard and pushing a whole baby out - you will probably have a BM (bowel movement.)

      @Mara Nocna that’s a well and good, no judgement for that, however I feel there aren’t many resources for women who want to go natural. Many women get an attitude from the hospital staff that they will inevitably ask for it eventually.

    In my country, doctor order enema to pregnant women before labor for not to poop while they giving birth. So inject glycerine in anal and waiting at least 30 minutes for pooping. The labor pain and the feeling of want to poop making them crazy. But it’s safe to baby and mother both. A woman who gave birth a baby said enema was nightmare while in labor.

    I was a c-section baby. I was breech. Which means my head was up and my feet was down. It was dangerous for me to be born like that. Does that answer people's questions about why a c-section is sometimes needed?
