    I wouldn't for them - I would for me lol. I'd want to be shaved just cause post-birth bleeding would be less annoying when it's not matting up in my pubes haha

    I didn't trim for my first, and ended up being dry shaved in theatre for my c/s. Hated it. So for my 2nd I shaved, albeit patchy as like you I couldn't see over my huge bump lol I also like to have minimal hair bc of the bleeding. But then I do that when AF comes every month too. I just find it cleaner and less messy. Each to their own though.

    I tidied up with clippers for my 40 and 41 week OB visits. I ended up with a csection at 41 + 2 and the nurse shaved about an inch off along my bikini line before we went down to theatre.

    I remember with DS I had an emergency c-sect and the surgeon said "oh good, you're ready for us" (referring to down there). Kind of weirded me out as the way he said it sounded surprised... As if not many women were clean shaven??

    I am 39+5 and saw my midwife today, but we have agreed no internals, so it has been a moot point this time.

    However, I had a stretch and sweep and internals with my son, and I was as hairy as a badger (as usual). The hair is neither here nor there to them, I imagine.
