LAUREN Goodger has shared a naked birthing pool snap as she opened up about her seven-hour labour.
The 34-year-old star and partner Charles Drury welcomed their first child last month, baby daughter Larose – named after Lauren.
The new mum has now given an insight into her labour on social media, including a photo of herself complete nude while giving birth, her modesty preserved with aptly-placed gifs.
In the snap, Lauren is reclining in the home birthing pool, which had been put up in her living room.
She has a baby emoji over her privates, and a watermelon bikini top covering her chest.
Lauren has also obscured her face, inviting fans to ask her questions about the labour.
The former Towie star had previously revealed that she only had gas and air while giving birth – and was grateful to not suffer any complications with the home birth.
I was in and out of the water in all positions!
Responding to fans, Lauren confessed that she was "scared" of labour, but "couldn't care less" about being naked.
She added: "I was in and out of the water in all positions".
Lauren then revealed that little Larose entered the world while she was standing up, explaining: "The last part, I pushed her out standing up."
And she "got in the zone" to battle contractions, trying to focus on how "each one brought me closer to my daughter".
This isn't the first time that Lauren has spoken out on labour, previously sharing that her placenta was "bigger than the baby" and came out "looking like a stingray".
She admitted she was "lucky" to not tear, so she didn't need stitches, and while she was still bleeding her bump was slowly going down as her body recovered.
Lauren also said labour pains made her feel like she was "about to die", but she was"really proud" once it was over.
Lauren and Charlie went public with their romance in October, announcing their pregnancy three months later.
At the weekend, Charlie said he'd propose to Lauren "in good time", with the pair previously sharing their joy that Larose will be able to attend their future wedding.
