When you're in the second stage of labor -- delivery -- you are mere minutes to a couple hours away from meeting your baby. If you're having a natural birth, you'll push hard during your contractions and rest in between them. And if you happen to poop during all that pushing, don't worry! It happens. Your care team should let you get into whatever delivery position feels best to you, like lying on your back, kneeling, squatting, or getting on your hands and knees.
