    I planned to trim about two weeks before my due date. DS had other ideas and made his arrival before I had a chance! I had a natural birth, no issues at all either during the birth or after. The ob and midwives won't care, so it's a personal decision.

    While at work I actually heard a dr complaining to another dr about women being 'to natural'. I was quite shocked to hear somebody who is supposed to be a professional speaking in this way. However, she also stated that when she had children she was going to wear a double electric breast pump to bed of a night to help her lose weight faSter. She was quickly informed that this was a great way to get mastitis!

    Default Birth preparation - er, 'maintenance'

    Hmm yes. It's amazing the difference between how well you think you've tidied and the reality once you can see again!

    It's true that it is mostly for you though - any peering down there is for the purposes of assessing baby not hair! Or a catheter if you have a CS. I had a pedi at around 38 weeks though as I've heard a number of midwives say that's what they notice!

    Lol I tidied but once baby was out and I could really see it again it was pretty poor effort.

    Just suggest they keep the lights down low.

    They won't care and see it all the time but I personally wax down there regularly so will do so at about 36-37 weeks before my c section at 38+

    I have always hated the "nude" feeling. I'm a woman, I'm meant to have pubic hair. I just trimmed and neatened it up best I could.

    Default Birth preparation - er, 'maintenance'

    I had a wax a few months ago and I swore I'd never ever do it again whilst pregnant. It hurt so so so much!!!! I was almost crying. I don't even know if ill ever do it again not pregnant after that! I was practicing labour techniques of breathing exercises and visualisation it was that bad.

    Default Birth preparation - er, 'maintenance'

    I'm getting a wax a few weeks before; for two reasons.

    1) Heavy bleeding and the matted clots last time were filthy!

    2) The pain and time it took to remove the dressing from my c-section wound when I had pubes all caught in it.

    And I guess too just because I hate pubic hair.
