According to Science!
A new study published in The Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine found some pretty interesting things out lately! It found that about one in five women are diagnosed with a condition called postoperative ileus, after a C-section, reported The New York Post.
Basically, this mans that after having a c-section, a woman’s bowels aren’t functioning properly, slows, or stop entirely. Any form of surgery that opens the abdomen can cause this, not just a c-section.
Definitely not something a new mom wants to deal with after being up all night, though.
