Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Peppermint Oil Vapor
Exposure of the perineum to the vapor of the active comparator, 2 ml peppermint oil. The perineum will NOT come into contact with the oil directly.
Other: Peppermint Oil Vapor
2ml of the oil will be placed in the urine collection "hat" that fits into the bowl of the toilet. Participants will then sit on the toilet in normal fashion, exposing their perineum to the vapor of the oil. The perineum will NOT come into contact with the oil directly - only the vapor from the oil will contact the perineum.

Placebo Comparator: Mineral Oil Vapor
Exposure of the perineum to the vapor of the placebo comparator, 2 ml mineral oil. The perineum will NOT come into contact with the oil directly.
Other: Mineral Oil Vapor
2ml of the mineral oil will be placed in the urine collection "hat" that fits into the bowl of the toilet. Participants will then sit on the toilet in normal fashion, exposing their perineum to the vapor of the oil. The perineum will NOT come into contact with the oil directly - only the vapor from the oil will contact the perineum.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Resolution of Postpartum Urinary Retention [ Time Frame: within 10 minutes after administering study intervention ]
    Spontaneous bladder voiding of at least 150 milliliters


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to resolution of urinary retention [ Time Frame: Within 6 hours of postpartum urinary retention ]
    Time to resolution of postpartum urinary retention, defined as time from either 6 hours after vaginal delivery or within 6 hours after straight catheter in recovery or 6 hours after catheter removal for cesarean delivery to resolution of postpartum urinary retention.

  2. Volume of urine voided [ Time Frame: Within 6 hours of postpartum urinary retention ]
    Volume of urine voided within 10 minutes after study intervention administration, expressed in milliliters

  3. Patient Satisfaction Level [ Time Frame: Within one hour of study intervention administration ]
    defined as patient rating of "agree" or "disagree" or "don't know" to the question, "I would recommend this treatment to other patients who cannot empty their bladder after delivering a baby."
