Grooming Your Bikini Line While Pregnant


Waxing is safe during pregnancy and you won’t be turned away, but be warned it will hurt like a mofo. Sure there might be a handful of women who had no pain, but let me tell you from every pregnant woman I have ever spoken to, the results were extreme pain, swelling, ice packs and broken blood vessels. This is due to the fact that there is an increased blood flow to the area and let’s face it, we are just more sensitive all around. If you are brave and not afraid of a pain, go for it!

    My husband uses his electric shaver on me. I put a towel down on the bed and he goes at it (the whole taco). That way I’m not completely bare, but it’s so short and manageable for many weeks. I can still shave the bikini line in the shower by feeling without using a mirror. Just tried last week at 38 weeks and it’s still doable.

  2. Emily says:

    I was nervous about having to ask my husband to try it, but I actually found I can shave entirely blind by just feeling around and being cautious. I am now 40 weeks and I never needed a mirror, but i’ve had years of practice shaving in a small shower where you can’t see it all anyway! All the other options sound good if you can afford it too.
