A good friend of mine is a post pardom l&d nurse and she says they 'appreciate' mothers who take the extra step of hair removal... So my guess is its all good.

My guess is with the overall extra blood flow to the area is that its uncomfortable... I guess if its not your first time around the block then it might not be so bad. I REALLY want to get it done but am soo scared!!! LOL - keep me posted!

The bad thing about living in the bible belt is that no one will do Brazilian waxes here lol

lol just like me... i was wondering of asking this question but i guess i m not the only one... i don't get so many hair on other parts of my body if i shave i can stay like that for good 2-3weeks... however down there and underarms they grow after 2 days... i m scared of pain lol now i m thinking should i get it done :S or have faith in my self and keep shaving until i m completely blind sighted by tummy... my husband recommend me to take mirror in bath but i feel bit uncomfortable looking down their :S

Your skin is more sensitive when you're pregnant, but waxing is still fine.
