My last MW suggested an enema during labor and I went with it. It was totally uncomfortable during those contractions but in hindsight it was a good idea. I did not worry about pooping until a whole day and a half after giving birth. Since I have no recollection of how that went, I'm going to assume it was not too bad.
I have a meeting with my new MW next week and I'll have to ask her about this, maybe I can take one earlier at home, that would make me a lot more comfortable than the hospital.
I just had to google again a list made by a mom-blogger I follow. One of the commenters mentions padsicles: put witch hazel on a giant maxi pad and put it in the freezer for instant cooling.. Here's the link: http://dearbabyblog.com/post/4718750068/a-candid-list-of-things-to-do-in-the-last-weeks-of (check item 9). I think I will add to that to my postpartum-care list.
