    I've waxed just beforehand with all four just for a tidy up as per normal. The question is when will bub arrive!?!
    I usually leave it until about 2-3 weeks prior to due date. This time I was also on blood thinners though so I bruised quite badly which took quite a while to dissipate. DH gave me a hand due to the fact I didn't want hot sticky wax in places I hadn't seen for some time

    I had IPL prior to my pregnancy with my DS and the results were awesome. That said, it all grew back with the pregnancy hormones

    Provided you are at a reputable place laser barely hurts. It's more like a sting. The best way of describing it is a warm rubber band flicking you. Plus it's heaps quicker than waxing for a Brazilian I find it doesn't even take 5 minutes.

    I waxed right up until 39 weeks... had my dd the next day so perfect timing!!!
    Just be prepared for it to hurt more than usual! I go to a salon that are super quick and efficient. Makes a huge difference

    With DD I had her 3 weeks early and was due for a wax and hair colour the day she was born. I ended up shaving before I left for hospital and in the midst of labour kept yelling out that I was freshly shaved. Thankyou gas!
    Lol!!!

    Thank you! I might do some google research to see if I can find a good/reputable place in Melbourne. Thanks again

    It's nothing compared to waxing. It's a sting for a second followed by cool air

    IPL hurts a bit the first few times when they are near a nerve but still less than waxing. As the hair thins over time it doesn't hurt at all. The place I go to for laser/IPL in Brisbane will not treat pregnant or breastfeeding women. I just trimmed, I don't like waxing as I get ingrown hairs.

    I used to wax every month, but now pregnant, there's more discharge (sorry tmi) and may not look the best. Kinda feel sorry for the beautician
