Issy Fox, 28, gave birth to son Freddie just shy of a year ago and was not prepared for what happened in the delivery room – admitting she covered doctors and nurses with her faeces.

Today is the international day of the midwife and with every #thankyoumidwife shared @pampersworld are going to donate £1 to the Benevolent Fund at the Royal College of Midwives as well as making over the staff rooms of the most thanked hospitals. I want to thank the midwife who tirelessly cleaned up my sh*t and helped me keep a bit of dignity, the midwife who relentlessly watched our heart rates fluctuate and kept us calm as well as reassured and cared for my Mum and Luke and not to mention my community midwife who didn’t mind having a look at my manky faj during every visit #ChannelMum #mumvillage #calmversations #simpleeveryday #ourcandidlife #myeverydaymagic #extraordinarylife #parenthoodmoments #teammotherly #momentsinmotherhood #labour

Issy and partner Luke conceived via fertility treatment and she had an easy pregnancy, with no complications.

But she didn't have a birth plan, having decided child birth would be "pretty awful" anyway.

Issy was already 10 days overdue when she went into labour – with her waters breaking at 1am – and the poo started pretty much immediately after arriving at the hospital.

She told Huffington Post: "The midwife asked me to go and provide a wee sample – and this is when the poo started.

"I couldn’t help but push a poo out into the tray because of all the pressure. The midwives just laughed it off and waited for me to just provide some pee."

By 7am, Issy's contractions were much closer together – and this is when her bowel movements ramped up a notch.

She added: "I was pooing with every contraction and the midwives were very subtly swiping it away.

"Unfortunately, my a*** was facing Luke most of the time so he also had the pleasure of watching a log fall out every minute or so."

Then, when she actually gave birth, Issy experienced an "explosion of poo".

She recalled: "I tore and exploded poo, womb stuff and blood all over the doctor, walls and floor.

"(My baby) was covered in my poo, his poo, blood and God knows what else. My first words were: 'I love you, but you’re disgusting'."

In more parenting news, this mum-of-two was left ‘gobsmacked’ after her husband asked ‘do you want to keep it?’ when she revealed she was pregnant… even though they’d been trying.

While this knackered mum-to-be accidentally wore a car seat cover as a ‘maternity’ skirt.
