Considering what a magical experience it’s said to be, there’s a lot about childbirth that isn’t all that pretty.
Bec Judd knows this all too well – she’s given birth to four children, after all. In fact, her biggest fear around the birth of her children related to something entirely common, but also a little gross.
The mum-of-four and her KIIS FM 3pm Pick-Up co-host Kate “Monty” Diamond confessed to listeners on Monday that ahead of each of their births, they were afraid of one thing above all else: pooing themselves.

Monty said that when chatting to her friends she told them “my biggest fear out of anything was pooing”. But the mum-of-two wasn’t alone – it was a fear shared by all her friends.
Bec, who also was worried about pooing while pushing out her first two children Oscar and Billie (her twins Tom and Darcy were delivered via c-section) shared how normal it was for women to have a bowel movement during birth.
“You know how common it is? Ninety per cent of women poo,” the she told Monty.
