It’s a known fact that childbirth isn’t always pretty. And mum-of-four Rebecca Judd isn’t the first to admit it.
Yesterday, the 34-year-old former model opened up to her 3PM Pick Up co-host Monty Dimond about her experience bringing twins Tom and Darcy into the world, one she has labelled as “horrific”.
Monty revealed her close friend welcomed a baby last week via c-section, to which Rebecca replied, “They are awful”.
“It’s the worst thing I’ve ever done. It’s horrific,” Rebecca said of the procedure, which she underwent in late September 2016.

Having welcomed two of her older children with a ‘natural’ birth, Rebecca said the experience of undergoing “major abdominal surgery” while awake was “far more horrific”.
“It’s mind-boggling and freaky,” she shared.
She shared that her experience led her to have a panic attack mid-birth.
“I was lying there, on the operating table, and I started pretty much having a panic attack. My heart was going nuts…it was jumping out of my chest,” she said.
“It’s all happening, there’s people everywhere, there’s bright lights, I’m about to meet my twins, it was kind of an emergency cesarean, I’d been stressed my whole pregnancy…it was wild.”
