What did Christine Lampard say?

The two went on to talk about the health concerns women may face after welcoming a baby.

Sharing her own experience, Christine said: “Generally people have a six-week check with a GP after having a baby.

“It was actually at my six-week check up that I discovered I had a hernia. I didn’t even know that was the case.”

I don’t think my hernia would ever have been diagnosed

The presenter continued: “If you don’t do these follow up things, you can go about your life as normal and be doing an awful lot of damage.”

Maria went on to urge viewers to check themselves regularly, particularly their pelvic floor.

Christine later added: “If I hadn’t physically seen a doctor at six weeks, I don’t think my hernia would ever have been diagnosed.”

On a recent upload, one fan commented: “You are such a joy to watch. The only time I ever tune into Lorraine is when you are presenting it.”

Another shared: “You should have the full-time job. Such a breath of fresh air.”

In addition, a third praised: “Wish you could replace Lorraine, she’s so boring. You know exactly what she’ll say about all the fashion, usually ‘I love this one’.”


Ahead of the summer stint, Christine appeared on the show to discuss her new addition with husband Frank.
