Pooping During Childbirth?

I've heard moms talk about pooping during delivery. Is this common?

Not everyone experiences this, but it's not at all unexpected. It's not usually very much, and the nurse just wipes it away. Trust us, it sounds like it would be humiliating, but you won’t even care (or even necessarily know) when you’re in the moment.
