Does anyone have a recommendation for a natural-ingredient stool softener for post-partum?

not suppository but stool softener, yes.

prune juice (seriously!) really works.

also a tablespoon of olive oil in your favorite drink will work well too.

if those fail (I'd be highly surprised among other things!) you can use epsom salts as a laxative too (recipe on the package).

I think that regular suppositories are glycerin --
but I would recommend using prune juice, plenty of fluid,
magnesium oxide by it's self not with other minerals- up to 1000 but start lower and go up as needed-- these are safe for pregnancy as well--
