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!!

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...
