You might not have wondered whether it’s alright to get a tattoo while pregnant, but you have probably considered whether it’s a-okay to get a bikini wax while preggers. People have a lot of thoughts on it and you might have heard some interesting stories. Check with your obstetrician and consider the kind of wax. (e.g. classic bikini or Brazilian wax) BabyMed says that waxing is generally safe for most women who are expecting, but the experience might be more unpleasant than normal due to an increased sensitivity from the higher hormone levels during pregnancy. Although, some mamas-to-be might consider it good prep for childbirth… Infection and ingrown hairs are things to be careful of, especially when you might not be able to see what’s going on down there because of the baby bump.
