  • Your nipples might get sore during your pregnancy. You might want to take them out when you breastfeed so they aren't in the way.

  • Pregnancy no, and breastfeeding no. You obviously wouldn't nurse with the jewelery in though lol. You would need to remove the ring, and clean, then nurse etc, then put it back in.

    There is no need to remove them for pregnancy either, unless you get uncomfortable or pregnancy changes causes them to irritate you etc.

  • The piercings will NOT affect your ability to get pregnant. Your nipple rings will make latching a big more difficult, but many women with nipple rings have successfully breastfed. I recommend using a bar and not a ring while breastfeeding ;)

    BTW... I have 16 piercings and 2 kids and breastfeed :D

  • Anon 11:20 #1 it's someone's choice whether or not to get or keep a piercing. Just because you're prude in this doesn't make it wrong for other people... EVERYONE HAD A LIFE BEFORE HAVING KIDS! Just because they have kids doesn't mean they have to take out piercings, get tattoo removal, get rid of sexy clothes and lingerie and start wearing a habit!

  • lmao @ celticreverie.

    Moms come in all different shapes and sizes... and even styles. Did you know that some moms are hippies and don't shave? Some are even goth! *gasp!* It's not the exterior of a woman that makes them a good mom.
