This just doesn't sound safe! I'm sure after the babe comes out, you could just trim....
I really don't get what the big deal would be. Why exactly would this be dangerous???
Yes, it hurts but I didn't bleed at all.
The only thing I would change is that DH and I had sex about an hour before my appointment. Of course I took a shower and cleaned up but I am sure that area was still tender because of the recent blood flow
So.... worst case scenerio you do bleed - it's just superficial. You could cut yourself shaving your bikini line.
I honestly see it as more sanitary because razors that are kept in shower areas can and do attract bacteria which would introduce infection.
This is something I have wanted to do for a while but knowing there will be pictures of my yoni is a motivating factor for me
We are hiring a photographer friend for our labor/birth. For me it's not about impressing my MW or making her job easier which is why hospitals shaved patients and of course, there would have been an episiotomy - they shaved me with my first AND I got an episiotomy
This is for me - well, DH too
I like to keep things very short/neat down there and that just becomes impossible when there is a big belly in your way - not to mention is is not physically possible for me to reach ummm... behind when I am big pregnant.
