‘Doctors always say, ‘Oh, do you have a problem?” Rebecca Judd reveals the medical complication that can happen after having four children
Mother-of-four Rebecca Judd revealed the downside to having a large family during a frank discussion on her KIIS FM radio show, 3pm Pick-Up.
Rebecca’s co-host, Katie ‘Monty’ Dimond, was recalling a story about a woman she knows who pooped her pants while dancing at a wedding reception.
But rather than being shocked by the story, the 36-year-old footy WAG said that it’s actually quite common for that to happen to women who’ve had several children.
After leaving Monty momentarily speechless, Rebecca explained matter-of-factly that women who’ve had a lot of babies often suffer from fecal incontinence.
‘I’ve had four [children] and doctors always say, “Oh, do you have a problem?” It’s a thing!’ she said.
Rebecca hastened to add that she hasn’t experienced the issue personally, it can be a common problem for women after childbirth.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald in May, Rebecca said she often feels ‘guilty’ about having to spread herself too thin.
‘People say having large families is the best, because they learn to play better and are more independent, but that is something I feel guilty about, especially when they are all yelling at me at the same time,’ she confessed.

‘I’ve had four and doctors always say, “Oh, do you have a problem?” It’s a thing!’ she admitted during a candid discussion on her podcast
‘You have to accept one, and reject the other three,’ she added.
‘If they all want me at the same time, when you think about it there is a 75 per cent rejection rate on their request for mum’s time.’
Speaking to WHO magazine in July 2018, Rebecca admitted that she and Chris never set out to have such a large family.
Who knew: Bec said while she hasn’t been affected by bowel incontinence, it is a common problem for women after childbirth
‘We thought we’d have a third child… maybe. But then we were away on holiday and we tried literally one time, and before I could change my mind, I was already pregnant!’ she said.
She added that discovering she was expecting identical twins came as a ‘shock’.
‘I was in shock. I feel like I’ll be in shock every day for the rest of my life! How did this happen to me?’ she said.
