  • My doc does not shave, she just washed and sanitised my area, shaving is not required

  • The doctors don't shave you down there when having a vaginal delivery.. I think they shave any hairs that are close to an incision if you have a c section... But not the vaginal area...

  • I personally didn't shave cuz i read it's cleaner for the baby. Natural birth though...not sure if they shave you for c sections.

  • I have c sections and the first time was an emergency so I didn't know they even did that to The second time was planned and they did it in the hospital...I didn't like that they did it. I'm having our little one next thurs and I'll probably shave myself because it's awkward letting them do it....

  • doctors don't shave you anymore. I shaved up until the day I delivered anyway.

  • I shaved myself, not bald but it wasn't mrs harry either. It was nice and trimmed and that was that. But I have always kept my girl parts pretty much well maintained. I have to agree with everyone else they do not shave you....nor do they compliment you on how well you have shaved yourself...

  • they don't shave down there any more. it actually poses a higher risk for an infection if they do.
    the only time they shave is for a c/s and it's just the part that they need to cut at, not the whole thing.
