Molly-Mae Hague horrified by embarrassing moment giving birth and had 'zero dignity'

Molly-Mae Hague has admitted she was worried about pooping herself while giving birth to her daughter Bambi.

Sharing her birth story, the Love Island star, 23, said that one of the main things she was "nervous" about was doing a poo during labour.

"I was pushing. She was coming out of me, I could feel it, it was incredible,” Molly tells fans on YouTube.

"It did actually feel like I was doing a poo. And by the way, did I poo in birth? Yes, I did, I think."

She candidly added: “The doctors were like, ‘oh no you haven’t, don’t worry about it’ but I’m 99.9 percent sure I could smell it.

“That’s one thing as well I was quite nervous about when I was pushing because I know if I push the way I’m gonna push this baby out, I’m gonna poo.

“And they were like, ‘don’t worry about it, 90 percent of women poo when they give birth’."

Molly-Mae filmed the entire birth but doesn't plan to share the footage.

“I was like ‘I know, but this is a very vulnerable position for me. My legs are in stirrups, there’s medical professionals all around me, my boyfriend is stood here. Like, I don’t wanna poo myself," she said.

“I have zero dignity, but even in that moment I still cared, I don’t know why."

The reason why pooing mid-labour is so common is because the same muscles used when having a bowel movement are the same ones engaged when pushing in labour.

There's also the extra pressure on the colon and rectum with a baby moving through the birth canal to consider.

But expectant mums needn't worry as midwives very discreetly clear it away.

Meanwhile, as she opens up about her birthing experience, Molly-Mae reveals the entire birth was caught on camera - but admits she won't be sharing the candid footage with fans.

"Funnily enough I did actually film myself giving birth," the star reveals to viewers in her latest vlog.

"I have the best, most magical video of me giving birth and I don't know on this planet I thought I could ever show that online.

"That is the most vulnerable video I will ever, ever have of me."
