I have a Nigerian doe do anytime and is HUGE and miserable lots of babies in there I'm thinking but I'm really worried that when she goes into labor she is going to prolapse on me. Every time she lays down or coughs what looks to he part of her vaginal wall or birth cannal pops out. It goes back in as soon as she stands up and she doesn't seem to be in pain but I obviously uncomfortable

Sorry not the best pic she likes to stand up when I get close enough. She has a good appetite and she "waddles" around poor thing I don't know what to do for her.

You can give her some.calcium which may help but if the prolapse disappears when she stands up then it is fine

For now I personally would use the CMPK paste, but I also agree, she should do just fine.

sometimes prolapses can indicate low calcium levels so sometimes a bit of calcium can help keep them just poking along. Any type of calcium product is ok, I use the CMPK injectable (under the skin) just because thats all I have. but oral is fine too.

Keep in mind that there are babies in there and that area has the most "give" when mom is laying down on that flat hard surface.

It can happen - I've seen a few girls that would have very small prolapses. They were tiny girls who had multiples in there. After they kidded, things went back to normal.

You can put wet sugar on any protrusion to keep it moist and help it shrink back down.
