those having csections or those who may

just a tip...i just remembered as i was 'blindly grooming' myself this morning - either get waxed or shave the top bit of hair off your bits...

i remembered when i was in the hospital with DS1 and had an emerg csection so although i was prepared i wasn't thinking about having tape down there...they put a piece of gauze with surgical tape around it to cover the incision for the first day at least - i think i had it on for a couple days actually.

try thinking about taking off tape or a bandaid down there!!! keep the hair very short at least at the top of your pubic bone if you don't normally shave or wax.

Re: those having csections or those who may

  • My beautician warned me that one of her clients had only shaved down there and she got a terrible ingrown hair on her scar line that she eventually had to have it surgically removed. Her advice is to wax it properly rather than just shave it off.

  • You might ask your hospital too.  They shaved me where the incision area would be before my csection, so I didn't have to worry about that.  There's no way at this point I could do it myself effectively and waxing sounds ouchy. :)

  • This is great advice - thank you!

    I just got waxed the other day in preparation, but more because I didn't want the nurses to do a "hatchet" job on shaving me and figured it would just be cleaner dealing with the postpartum bleeding and stuff. I didn't actually realize there would be tape down there...sounds super painful to take off if you still have any hair...ouch!
