Sorry if too much info but had last baby 6 years ago. I took a peek down there recently ( never been brave enough) and it looks like a piece is flappy skin and slightly discoloured ( a bit darker than rest of skin). I'm guessing its from episiotomy scar? Should it look like this?

Don't out know which type of episiotomy you had? It shouldn't really be a flap as such. But it will be a different colour. Obviously it's completely healed after 6yrs and it will be fine. I always tell people to have a look at it early on, I appreciate that they don't want to but it's the only way they'll know if there is anything wrong or if it changes. Most people I know who have had one won't even let their OH look confused
