What do your lady bits look like after vaginal birth?

Is it just ME or is anyone else a bit shocked by the appearance of their bits after giving birth vaginally?

I mean all I seem to see is the internal muscles - I'm sure there used to be more external skin there.

Should I just stop looking?!

(I'm not using my normal nickname on this thread, no chance!)

I think it may get better with time, but in the mean time there's not much you can do about it so I think that probably it is a good idea to stop looking...

Well now I feel like a FREAK!

It's been a few years already ...

It's not exactly something I can look up on Google though is it?!

Never looked.
FAB name BTW!

Not something I have ever had the urge to look at tbh, not before children and certainly not after three!!

Why do you look?

what an odd thread

kebabbits Tue 24-May-05 20:56:54

I can't believe you haven't looked!

I looked about an hour afterwards.

I want to check out DH's view of things...

and see whether they did blanket stitch or what.

there was another thread on the same bit of anatomy a while ago by someone called poppypower ........ (a one time poster )

PMSL - have read through this thread and have visions of contortionist (sp?) mumnsnetters at all angles in front of a mirror.

Well lets say I studiously avoided looking until a good few months after the event by which time everything had recovered...

tillykins Tue 24-May-05 21:04:43

my tummy is too big to see over

foolysh Tue 24-May-05 21:05:27

You really don't want to see this.
Gawd, no wonder it hurt so much.
