Why can't you shave before?
I always shave. Well, my first csection wasn't expected. Lol, I remember getting wheeled into the OR and the nurses were prepping me. One had a shaver and when she lifted my gown she said 'oh, your already shaved '. Lol.
My second was a failed vbac. Knowing i might end up with a csection no one told me not to shave and so I did.
I had to shower after 24hrs too. I'd feel too gross if I didn't. At home I used the plain Dial soap to clean the area.
