No ostracism, but why would you "wallow" in your own birth fluids? For one, you can labor in the tub without birthing in the tub. If your mucous plug comes out, or anything else for that matter that isn't fluid, they have nets to catch and take out quickly. If you do choose to birth in the tub, pretty quickly after you birth you are allowed to get out....I didn't wallow in it and it wasn't nearly as disgusting as you are making it out to be. Just don't want to scare off any mama's thinking about going that direction, but you are of course welcome to your opinion!
I personally have a lot of birth fluids, my mucous plug doesn't come out in a chunk, it is similar to a heavy period with lots of extra mucous. It comes out over a long period of time. There would be no scooping of the mucous. For me, if I stayed laboring in a tub, I would be wallowing in my birth fluids, and it would be as disgusting as I'm making it out to be. And I've never pooped accidentally in labor, so I'm not worried about that. It's my abundant mucous that I'm afraid of. My intent wasn't to "scare" any potential water birthers out there, I was just voicing my own idiosyncrasy and still, after all these years, trying to wrap my head around waterbirth being appealing, as in, not gross to me.
