So I have a couple...

of piercings. And I was wondering if when delivering if they are going to make me take them out or not!?!?

  • Depend on where your piercings are if they are below the belt then yes they will. If they are above the belt I don't see why they would make you. If you have a c-section all jewelry comes off.

  • I had to take out my tongue ring when I gave birth to my son, and I know a few women who have had to remove belly button piercings. That was 6 years ago though, not sure if anything has changed.

  • For my c-section, EVERYTHING had to be out and during labor all that are down there will need to be removed for sure

  • Ask your doctor about it. Everyone and every hospital has different rules about it. If it's genital piercings, maybe. If not, then they probably won't make you take them out.
