Just thought I would start a thread about the disgusting things that happen during birth and after. Just to hopefully prepare the new mums.
The most demeaning thing that happened to me was after the birth. I had a 2nd degree tear, so had to have stitches checks each day. So I thought I would let the new mums to be know how this is done. Well how it was for me.
Nurse comes in tells you it stitches check time. Basically you roll on your side, the nurse pulls your knickers and pad to the side, and open everything up from front to back to have a gawk!
Not nice, but at least now you are prepared if necessary. I had no idea and never had really thought about it, and was horrifed each and everytime I needed them.
Sorry if it is TMI, but I honestly thought pooping while giving birth would be the most embarressing thing that could happen. Boy was I wrong!
