"As for the danger of childbirth, you may as well go to the hospital every time you need to poop as it is a similar physiological process during which people sometimes die."
- i really hope you are joking.
the physiology of labor & delivery is extremely dynamic and presents significant stress to mother and baby. as most laboring women are young and healthy, they are able to tolerate these changes without difficulty. however, for those mothers or babies with certain baseline medical problems or compromised organ systems, the physiologic stress of labor and delivery can be profoundly dangerous.
not at all like taking a dump.
