shaving...

I was wondering if I could get some opinions on shaving 'down there' before labor. I can't see down there but the material that I was reading said it may be more comfortable afterwards. Cleanliness and whatnot. Sorry if its T M I.

Don't need to see, just feel or use handheld mirror. I vote for shaving or groom to.have the hair very short!

I was just trimming down there earlier today. Plus attempted to shave/groom the top section a little. Pretty sure I did a horrible job but I feel so much better afterward. More human for sure, lol.
Just be careful and avoid it if you're really sore or swollen down there.

I think you should shave!! I'm sure you don't want everyone seeing a bush down there :) I know it's hard, but try your best!!

also, ive heard it can be really uncomfortable to have hair with all of the afterbirth and blood and stuff getting tangled up in it...

That's what I had heard - firstuterally

My hubby would say no way! I shaved last night. I am sure it isn't the best groom job in the world, but as far as I can tell its mostly done. Lol. Awkward...
