Is it true that they will empty our bowels before the labour process starts? Any pain or discomfort for this?
I delivered at Thomson Medical and I had one of those laxatives before labour (mine was induced and self check-in beforehand so there was time). I don't know how other hospitals do it but the only discomfort was the feeling of wanting to empty bowels and that's fine after going to the toilet :x
I was given a laxative then a nurse gave me an enema (basically sprayed water up my butt hahah) afterwards just had to pass motion. Totally no pain or discomfort! I did csect though not labour
I'm a FTM but i had a laparoscopy three years ago and before surgery they had given me laxatives to empty my bowels. I've also heard of this being done before labour.
Yes its true. If u can empty your own it will be good. For me , i empty bowels before my labour . So they didnt give me any pill. And proceed into labour
Is it a must for it? I didn't receive anything for it. I delivered in kkh though
