Hi! Me too initially nothing seems to help. Not even with stool softeners. Been 4 months after giving birth. The constipation got slightly better at about 2.5 months once my hair started falling (hormones getting back to normal I guess?) but I'm still on stool softeners 3 times a day now. I also posted to see if anyone have similar experiences as I have. I'm hoping for the best! And That my system recovers from the child birth soon!

I had the same problem. I just ate lots of fiber, drank a ton of water and waited it out. About a month and a half after Willow was born things went back to normal.

After my kids I had to live on Fiber to get things moving again and then once they started, it was back to normal. I seriously ate super high fiber foods all day - lots of fruit, Fiber One cereals/bars, double fiber bread for sandwiches. Stool softeners didn't do a whole lot for me.
