Brooklyn Decker, who has two children with retired tennis player Andy Roddick, told a story about having her best friend take a look at her vagina after giving birth to her first child.

On PEOPLE's podcast "Me Becoming Mom," Decker revealed how she asked her friend to take a look because she didn't want to be traumatized by her own vagina as it recovered from child birth.

From People:

"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, Head of Digital at PEOPLE.

"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.

"And she's like, 'Okay, yep it's seared in my brain. There's a physical record.' And yes, now she has to carry that with her the rest of her life. That's friendship right there," she says.

If you don't have a friend willing to check out your vagina after giving birth you don't really have any friends or maybe this chick is out of her mind.
