Honestly I would think hormones could be having an effect, I know my periods used to mess with my bowels. Id also get a second opinion from another doctor, given that it didnt happen prior to childbirth. there are some complications that may cause this symptom.  Get checked out by  a different doctor is my best advice. If there isnt anything, then it may just be a hormonal/cramping issue but best get checked out

These symptoms can be due to irritable bowel syndrome and the other possibilities to be ruled out is of any rectovaginal fistula or piles. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional bowel disorder characterized by mild to severe abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating and alteration of bowel habits. You should consult a surgeon and get it evaluated.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
