Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I got a bikini wax at 39.5 weeks and delivered at 40.5 weeks. It was still smooth!

Uhm... Mind if I ask why bother? Most hospitals don't shave women anymore because it actually increases risk of infection, being that the skin has been ticked off and you likely have an ingrown or two.

I think being hairless makes pp clean up much easier.

I'd trim but no way do I want to deal with the itch/razor burn/uncomfortable-ness pp.

Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I am hoping it makes pp a lot easier to deal with too...
I have never (knock on wood) had an ingrown from waxing! The hair grows back very fine and not for quite a while.

Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I do not shave or trim ever nor when pregnant. They did shave the top a bit when they decided to do a c section. But in Europe they do not shave for childbirth. Is it common in the US?

Is it sad that I'm more nervous about my waxing than about by delivery? LOL

I didn't think so until I read this thread!

PP clean up.. like.. getting wiped by the nurse? Because honestly that's their problem.

I'm glad there's other mamas that don't shave or wax before delivery (or ever lol) DH likes it just fine like that so I honestly never thought about it, and delivered both of my children "au natural" I was so embarrassed reading this thread at first because I didn't realize other people shave before delivery. But I doubt the nurses really care.
