Prenatal Waxing

A down-there grooming for the mom-to-be, as mentioned in Jezebel, is no joke. Before I gave birth to Vivien, I braced myself for my first-ever bikini wax. At the time I thought I was going to have a vaginal birth and wanted a clean plate on which to serve my daughter, so to speak. Also, the bigger the belly gets, the harder it is to do any kind of trimming. If you can’t bend over, it’s a jungle down there.

But don’t let anyone con you. Waxing hurts. When I got it done, waxer lady said I was sensitive because of my hormones. I was sensitive because my hair was being yanked out by strips of hot wax.

Do get a wax, and getting a mani-pedi is smart. ‘Cause, let’s face it, once that new baby comes, you are a prisoner in your house for a while and you want to look your best for… for… for… hmmm, who will see you?

  1. Oh hell no! Waxing when pregnant is the worst ever! For real, I did it for similar reasons (common decency to the delivery staff) around 7 months pregnant… screamed in agony in the salon, drove home crying, and ripped my skirt and knickers off as soon as I got in the door. My husband thought I was in early labor.

  2. I have been getting everything waxed for the past 11 years. I’ve gotten to the point where it barely stings, but I have only gotten waxed once while pregnant because it hurt so much! I had no idea that my skin could get so sensitive. Just be warned, do I still get waxed? yes. But it hurt like a son of a gun!
