Constipation is very common after childbirth, especially if you are taking pain medication.

How do you know if you're constipated?
Constipation may be a problem for you if you:

  • Regularly have to strain with bowel movements
  • Have hard or lumpy stools
  • Feel you are not emptying completely
  • Have less than three bowel movements per week

If that sounds like you and you want to fix it, that’s what this section is all about.

We also cover hemorrhoids and fecal incontinence too!
