This vagal response to pushing will cause your heart rate to drop (bradycardia), tears to drip out of your eyes, pee, poop, nausea, and vomiting. Eighty percent of women get sick during labor and delivery, but you don't have to. To avoid these natural nausea and vomiting receptors, try peppermint essential oil infused pressure technology wristbands called NoMo Nausea. Don't be surprised if you see NoMo Nausea Med Plus used in labor and delivery rooms across 12 countries of the world specifically made in the U.S.A, but don't rely that the birthing center near me has it, instead put it on your BuyBuy Baby registry or buy it here and don't be that girl to poop and puke on yourself.
Another reason why you are likely to poop during labor is prostaglandins. These are naturally occurring body hormones that play a role in normal bowel function and initiation of labor. The same hormones are used to induce labor.
