In brief: Gently

Start slowly. Do not strain to pass a stool.
Try a glycerin suppository (over the counter.) try a careful enema, either a single use one, like fleet's, or from an enema bag. Drink plenty of water. If these are not effective or bleeding occurs see a medical practitioner. Avoid extreme anxiety about this matter. This occurs often in constipation and can lead to inappropriately aggressive solutions.
