💩 after c section

What are some things I can do to help my first 💩

I am getting the urge to go and my body is trying to force out the poo but it’s just not happening. My body is contracting and trying to force it and it hurts. But the doctor also said not to strain myself. I have internal dissolvable staples and strips on the outside.

I’m taking stool softener daily and took Gericare today.

I gave birth on 4/29 so I haven’t poo since then.
