I never knew this; that pregnant mothers could be having difficulty wiping their butts after emptying their bowels but after my wife was pregnant with our second born son and she either kept there for too long or came tired and a little bit frustrated after a visit to the washroom, it is then that I knew. After going to the toilet she also made sure to go to the tub and clean and I wondered whether she was remaining with some poop after bowel emptying.
Let me admit this, it was kinda awkward to ask her what was amiss. And even more awkward when she had to tell me that she was actually having difficulty reaching. It was as though her hands had shrunk. And yes, they must have seemed to be shrinking because she was 6 months pregnant and the bump was so big. She clearly needed a extension arm to wipe her behind.
Initially before the bump, she would wipe her bottom from front to back. That is what they are all told ever since they were young girls. That a woman should wipe their butt from front to back to prevent their genitalia from getting UTIs and all bacterial infections from the feces. So here she was struggling to continue doing it even in her pregnancy but it was getting harder. The bump was soo big that getting to the front was a problem. And so she thought about doing it from back to front. But was afraid of getting a UTI.
So since I had already started doing some reviews on these toileting items, I advised her to try the freedom wand tool.
