Is it normal that I am scared to poop after giving birth?

Yes: Your intestines take a while to get back to normal, so it may take several days for you to need to have a bowel movement. In that time, the stool can get hard and be difficult to pass. It's a good idea to take a tool softener until things are working right. And keep up your fluids!
