Linda Robson has given us a glimpse inside what it’s like to give birth to her children, and it’s fairly wild.
The 65-year-old appeared on Loose Women on Wednesday during a segment on birthing bags and what individuals should pack.
The topic of ‘birth combs,’ which have been suggested to help with labour pains as a ‘distraction,’ came up at one point.
Kaye Adams joked to Linda that she’d be placing the birth combs ‘at the other end’.
‘What, combing down below?’ Linda replied, as Judi Love burst into hysterics.
Linda continued: ‘They are going to my knees, I can do a nice little plait!’
As the live audience cackled with laughter, Kaye added: ‘You’ll want some hair bobbles as well!’
Moving on to what Linda did have in her birthing bag, she said that she had a mirror.
Explaining why, she confessed: ‘I wanted to see what had happened down there!
‘There was an explosion!’
She added: ‘It’s never been the same ever since!’
Turning to a more serious tone, she shared: ‘Obviously you needed sanitary towels, nighties, a hair brush, a cushion.’
When Kaye suggested water to help people cool down, Linda interrupted: ‘Don’t start spraying cold water all over me, I’ll kill you!’
Linda continued on the same topic when Kaye remarked that Linda should have brought shaving blades in her birthing bag.
‘Also in those days, you used to shave down below didn’t you? It made it all itchy, when you sat down you were all itchy.’
A bit TMI Linda…
She added: ‘I did have some cream there, they said, you’ve got some really lovely haemorrhoids, I didn’t know what haemorrhoids were.’
