Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha has revealed on the show that she ‘sobbed’ when she saw her vagina after giving birth.
The mum-of-two shared the intimate information when the panel were discussing vagina dysmorphia, after it was revealed there has been a 45% per cent rise in labiaplasty procedures in 2016.
Speaking about her own experience of vagina dysmorphia, Nadia said: ‘I certainly remember after I had my baby sitting there with my legs open and a mirror and sobbing my eyes out because now it was so deformed.
‘And that’s a kind of dysmorphia isn’t it, a kind of warped, overblown idea,’ she added.
But after the 52-year-old’s very personal revelation, fellow panellist Andrea McLean asked her why she looked at the area in the first place, and Jane Moore agreed that she’s never looked.
‘If you did a line-up of ten vaginas, I genuinely wouldn’t know which was mine,’ she confessed.
But Nadia wasn’t the only one who admitted to have taken a peek down there, with Stacey also revealing she looked after she gave birth to her son Zach.

‘Sometimes you have to, when I had Zach, I had to look and check my stitches. Also I wanted to look,’ Stacey explained, before admitting she still feels ‘conscious’ about it.
‘Even before I was conscious of it; I had those insecurities definitely. But now if you’ve had children and you meet someone else you think; is it a bit big now, is it massive? I do feel really conscious about it’, the former I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here star confessed.
Vagina dysmorphia is a type of body dysmorphia, an anxiety disorder that causes a person to have a distorted view of their appearance and spend a lot of time worrying about how they look.

However, some viewers were not happy about the panel’s discussion, which some considered to be a bit too much for daytime TV.
One wrote on Twitter: ‘Why am I listening to @loosewomen discuss vaginas at 1pm on an afternoon!’
While another said: ‘Disgusted with the topics on today’s show, lunch time show and your talking about vaginas! What the hell is happening here??????’
