  • Nope, not at all. They did make me take it off during labor and since they decided that I had to have a c/s. Then right before I was taken to the OR, I took my jewelry off.

  • I couldn't fit my ring on my finger due to how swollen I had become, I had pre-eclampsia. But I wore my earrings, no problem.

  • They made me take off my rings and watch. But I kept in my earrings. I had to sign a paper stating that if my earrings were stolen, it was my problem not theres.
    The hospital I was at, said taking off the jewelry was b/c someone could steal it and if I swelled.

  • No. The only thing I had to remove was my hood piercing because my doctor was afraid it would tear my clitoris when the baby crowned. I took that sucker OUT!
