  • I normally shave, so I will probably shave before I go (as long as the baby doesn't sneak up on me). of course, this is also assuming I will be able to see and reach down there to do it without injuring myself ;)

  • i dont think it matters one way or another if you can still see down there then go for it just be careful

  • i had my hubby shave mine lol. but it was for a personal preference. i dont think the drs and nurses will really be concerned about whether you shaved or not and if they do care-then they have wayyyy too much time on their hands lol :)

  • If you normally do then go ahead. If you do not normally practice shaving down there then don't.
