There are few times in life when you're obliged to talk about your toilet habits quite so openly as you do in the first days after a birth. And few times you're expected to talk about it In front of an audience i.e. the other women in the maternity ward, with no choice but to listen as your midwife grills you on whether you've pooed or not that day. Whispering a reply doesn't help either - she just repeats what you said, even louder. Sigh.
