I guess my hubby and midwife will just have to understand why I'm patchy. Grooming by feel alone is quite difficult, and i don't care enough to get out a mirror. The way I feel at this point is if I can't see it, it isn't a problem !
I actually started a huge thread about this called Cubic Pear under Birth Professionals awhile back. Interesting discussion.

I would like to get one good shave done before having the baby because it makes it more pleasent, imo, when having to deal with lochia for a few weeks.
I went in two days ago for a bikini wax which was a real treat. I can't see it myself and my partner doesn't mind that I hadn't done anything but it felt good. Now the question is if that session will last until the birth--I doubt it.
Having said that, I know you all are right and no one cares and is looking at whether you have some stray hairs when you are in labor--and I'm sure that it will certainly be the farthest thing from *my* mind when the moment comes!

But I was thinking of getting DH to do a big weed-whacking job down there before the birth... the idea of all that hair and the lochia etc. does not appeal to me.
I know they used to routinely shave women before birth and they don't do this now (as far as I know)- but besides for episiotomy, which most of us won't be getting I think, is shaving/not shaving better for the birth in any way???
