Brooklyn Decker Reveals the Uncomfortable Task She Asked a Friend to Do Right After Childbirth

Brooklyn Decker is shouting out a loyal friend for helping her out with an uncomfortable task after childbirth.

My best friend came that day [I had my son] and she at that point had not had children. And I’m like ‘Jen, I can’t look at [my vagina] because I think it’ll traumatize me forever but I need someone to take in what’s happening down there,’ ” she tells host Zoë Ruderman, PEOPLE 数字主管.

And I took her to the bathroom and I literally bent over and had my best friend just take a physical record of what was going on so someone could tell me what was happening. Because so many people had commented on like stitches and this and that,” recalls Decker, who has teamed up with Bodily, a resource for all things women’s bodies and maternal health.

The clots started to come. And my mom, being a nurse, but not labor and delivery, 仿佛是, ‘This is in any other circumstance not normal,’ ” recalls Decker. “I’m seeing them in the toilet, I’m seeing them in the diaper mesh short pad ice pack situation that’s all layered under them. The nurse came in and saw them and she goes, ‘These are totally normal. If they get bigger than a golf ball, call me.’ “
