Does your vagina actually stretch and become loose after having a baby ?

In brief: Yes.

The vagina does stretch during a vaginal delivery, though not if you had a cesarean delivery.
It generally regains most of its shape afterwards, but will always be somewhat different.

I agree.There is tissue and muscle break down which may never re-connect and leaves vagina lax and weak causing bladder to drop or incontinence of urine or stool
