Getting Ready For Summer – Tips for a Smooth and Hairless Pregnancy Body

Posted June 25th, 2013 by Lullabelly


Beach shell

Memorial Day marked the official opening of pool season across the country. That means it’s time to pull out the swimsuit – or perhaps go shopping for a cute new maternity suit (hint: Target has great maternity swim wear).

Of course baring it in a bathing suit means you probably need to do some all around mommy maintenance. But is your typical hair-removal routine safe to do while pregnant?

Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to removing unwanted body hair while pregnant:


Electrolysis – No research has shown yet that this hair removal technique is unsafe while pregnant.

Waxing – Is totally safe to do while pregnant. However, because you have more blood flowing to your skin in pregnancy – you’ll probably be more sensitive to the sting – especially in the pubic area.

Shaving – If the above methods sound a bit like torture – stick to the good old razor and shaving cream. But if you’re going to shave in the shower, ask your partner to help keep your balance. You may need to use a mirror too if your belly prevents you from seeing “down there.” Be sure someone helps you in and out of the tub, too!


Depilatories: You’ll want to avoid any chemicals when removing hair. There is a risk that the chemicals will be absorbed through your skin, which is no good for baby.

Don’t sweat it! If you miss a spot, or don’t feel up to the task of shaving or waxing – I assure you that people will be looking at your cute belly and not your hairy lady bits.
