My 12 day old has been crying and struggling everytime she has to poop. Her poop is normal for a newborn but it seems so hard for her to get it out. She screams and seems like she's in pain but then is okay after pooping...

If she is nursing, then she is probably colicky. It is a frustrating thing for sure. You can try gas drops, like Mylicon. Laying her across your lap and rocking your thighs side to side or laying her face-up on your lap and bicycle her legs and tuck them to her chest can help her pass both gas and poop
