Loose Women Frankie Bridge felt judged for snubbing natural birth for C-section

Loose Women's Frankie Bridge has spoken out about not being "fussed" about giving birth vaginally, and how she felt judged over having two caesareans sections.

Speaking on Loose Women on Thursday (March 31), Frankie and the panel spoke candidly about giving birth and how there is stigma surrounding the decision to not give birth "the natural way".

The stunning star who shot to fame while in girl group The Saturdays gave birth to her two children Parker and Carter by caesarean section.

Frankie, 33, explained on the programme that while she wasn't actively against giving birth vaginally, she wasn't desperate for one, explaining that she "wasn't fussed".

Discussing the debate between the two ways available to give birth, she said: "I don't understand it because, in the nicest way possible, I don't care how anyone has their baby as long as they're ok and the baby is okay.

"I had two C-sections and they were elected and we were saying before, I think a lot of people want the experience of a natural birth, but I wasn't fussed."

She was then asked about whether or not she felt judged by the way she gave birth to her two boys – having had c-sections for both.

Frankie addressed the panel and told viewers at home: "100 per cent and I think the too posh to push thing is a lot to blame for that. People see it as a lazy way out.

"I had a lot of 'oh was it an emergency?' and I think you get it from the minute you're pregnant and for the rest of your life."

In late 2011 Frankie got into a relationship with hunky footballer Wayne Bridge and then got hitched three years later in a private ceremony.

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
