Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I don't know that it's common to wax/shave specifically for delivery, but if it is something one does regularly, i would assume pregnancy wouldn't change that!

That makes sense. Whew! LOL. I was thinking, "what if I'm the only one that's ever gone in like that and didn't know it?"

You're not the only one!

By the end of my pregnancy I couldn't shave my legs, let alone my girly area. It was NOT cute down there I've never had a wax in my life. I've always been to nervous to go.

Yes. I have hated my pubic hair since the day it first grew in. No uterus overflowing with baby is going to stop me from shaving.

But I doubt the nurses really care.
I think I trimmed with buzzers for DD and will do the same for this delivery but I never shave or wax down there but figured a little shorter is more manageable/visable.

Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I trim but only because its easier clean up with the gross post partum bleeding afterwards.

no, lithe hairs stick together and sometimes pull uncomfotably. When you trim/shave that doesnt happen.

Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I read the first several replies in horror, before realizing that not everyone waxes or shaves before delivery...I started to think it was expected! I've found out many horrifying things on here, like your hair falls out and you stink PP. Eep. I can barely even handle waxing my eyebrows

I shaved myself as much as I could until d day. One of the times a nurse checked my she was actually excited that I was clean dorm there, so maybe they do care. I mean, I know they've seen it all, but doesn't mean they wanna see more! Lol

Re: When to get waxed before L&D?

I worked in L&D for a year and I can say that everyone certainly does not shave or wax! Seemed to be a minority that did.
