  • I would definitely wait to get piercings until after you are done for risk of infections and the possibility of baby not taking your breast afterwards. You may end up having to stop, it is not worth the risk. It's only a few months or so depending on how long you decide to breastfeed for.

  • I'm pretty sure that the biggest risk is something like infection or getting HIV or Hepatitis. I'm not sure about anything else, though. I waited til I stopped BF to get a new piercing, though.
