Waxing

Can you get a Brazilian or bikini wax while pregnant? Currently 6 weeks and work as a cosmetologist in a full se4rvice salon. Some of my clients are pregnant and my business partner said she would do a bikini wax on me if it is safe. I havent heard the risks ect.. about it and neither have any of my coworkers. THX :)

  • It is nothing that absorbs through the skin so why not. Later on the skin may be too tender to do..but at 6 weeks. Sure. I would.

  • I asked the lady that waxes me, and she said it's totally fine, ask your doctor next time you go in if you're really concerned.. Like GrnEyedGrandma said, your skin might be tender
