    Don't think it matters, I just maintained the Brazilian I always have.

    I had one done, but I get them done when I am not pregnant.

    I was also glad I had it done as I had an emergency c-section.

    I got a Brazillian. But it wasn't unusual for me though. I was quite happy as I ended up having an episiotomy so that was easy to care for.
    But go with what you are comfy with- the hospital staff won't care

    I was planning on trimming but DS arrived a bit early, and I had no issues at all. Whatever you are most comfortable with.

    Yep. I had an emergency c-section and was trim, and they shaved me for surgery. Not everything, just the top part where they clean you up and open you up - so about 3cm from the top.

    It's part of c section practice as far as im aware like any other surgery to shave the area being operated on. Not so for vaginal births though as far as I'm aware. I personally have been xxx waxed for years and just prefer myself that way and now that I'm pregnant it hasn't changed, its perfectly safe to be waxed during pregnancy.

    The first time I was all natural didn't give it another thought but this time I did consider a Brazilian and then thought what the heck why bother!!! I'll have hairy legs too cause I just can't manage them either although that will be one of the first things I fix when I get home, I HATE HAVING HAIRY LEGS LOL!!!!!

    have you ever tried putting in a catheter when there is so much hair down there? Its a lot harder!
    I think of the hygiene of having so much hair and an episiotomy/tearing/stitches and then receiving ultrasound treatment on the perineum etc.
    Personally its something i'd maintain and its actually more common these days for women to not have much hair down there
    personal choice though

    I normally shave but can't reach so a bit closer to my due date I will be getting everything waxed off. Hate hate hate having hair down there. I was all natural for my first and it wasn't pleasant afterwards. Was shaved for my second (didn't get very big so could still rech) and was so much better.

    Hell no! I planned a VB with my first and it was recomended to have one by some crazy friends. At first it was fine, i am used to having my bikini waxed but as she got closer to the middle and more sensitive bits, i more and more felt the urge to kick the chick torturing me in the head. Eventualy i could not take it anymore, i was sure i was bussy bleeding to death as i could not see past my bump. I just screamed out, if you dont stop now i am going to have this baby right here!

    When i got home, i decided to have a look if everything is stiil intact as it felt like there was a fire in my panties, and obviously curious. I looked like something between a pink plucked chicken and BA from the A-team! Never again...!
