Hair Removal For Normal Childbirth and Cesarean Section

When it comes to waxing for childbirth, those videos of foreign births, natural with a swollen vagina for birth and full of pubic hair without even being trimmed for the occasion, come to mind. This is completely normal in countries with a culture of keeping it as natural as possible, but I also think it is because it is a bit complicated to shave alone at this stage. However, for Brazilian women this can be a completely different conversation!

In the country where the super-dipped bikini lives in fashion, waxing is famous for being super up-to-date and well-dug, often without any hair in the intimate area to give the air of grace. However, not all women experience hair removal so intensely.

Types of Hair Removal

The types of hair removal are varied and completely different for each woman. There are those who like to shave with a professional experienced in waxing hot wax. There are also those who do daily waxing with cold wax at home, or use the famous “razor blade” to get rid of hair.

Also suitable devices for the process like the electric epilator that promises to remove the hair by the root. However, waxing for childbirth is a separate matter. We must remember that pregnant women should not use certain hair removal techniques , such as laser with continuous or pulsating light and even depilatory creams .

Ideal Hair Removal For Each Type of Childbirth

Epilation for normal delivery is not essential. As we see in several videos on the internet, regardless of whether your hair removal is up to date or not, delivery will happen without any major problems. However for personal hygiene and also visual, repairing epilation can be adopted, this removes the excess around the groin and trims the longest hairs.

If you are unable or unsure of doing it yourself (the tummy can be very disruptive) you will have to ask for help from a professional or even from your husband. From the husband? YEA! In the maternity ward, and on the three occasions that I had a baby, it was common for women to say that their husband helped with epilation for childbirth !

Believe it or not, it is a constant account even today in the conversation with the new mothers. Some experts do not recommend total waxing or even the most dug, so talk to your doctor what should be done if you want a normal delivery.

Hair Removal For Cesarean Section

What about epilation for cesarean delivery? This requires greater care, since the cut of the surgery will be done in a region full of hair like the bikini line. Doctors and nurses used to preparing women for cesarean delivery, say that a lower waxing of the bikini line , close to the beginning of the division of the labia majora, is sufficient for delivery.

However, if you want to take more hair than this region is possible, but it is not entirely necessary. Epilation for childbirth can be done with hot, cold wax, dressers or even razors. Total hair removal is not necessary, it is at the discretion of the pregnant woman.

When to Epilate

Epilation should be done up to 2 days after delivery with hot or cold wax. This is because the follicles that remain open due to the removal of hair can cause the accumulation of bacteria that will occasionally bring some type of problems in childbirth.

Hair removal with blades should be done on the same day of the procedure, because the hair growth is very fast with this type of epilation for childbirth. It is important to remember that in case of cesarean section, epilation can be performed at the time of the procedure, trichotomy is not exactly a depilation, but a way to clean the area to be performed the surgery .

Some salons have refused to do total hair removal in the last weeks of pregnancy due to a myth that has emerged, that the sudden removal of hair would anticipate labor, but there is no exact relationship between the two. It is only advisable to avoid repeated skin pulling. So this is it, if you don’t want to look like a closed jungle during delivery, the minimum to do is to trim the hair very short, but the choice is yours (less in cases of cesarean section where epilation is necessary). However, total hair removal is optional.

Taking advantage of the space, I want to tell a new thing to our mommy readers and who are thinking of having another baby in the future, or even if they have a friend who is trying to get pregnant. In partnership with Famivita, we have developed a line of specialized products for health and fertility. Among them are FamiFerti fertility vitamins, ViriFerti fertility vitamins, ovulation tests and the FamiGel fertility-friendly lubricating gel , which plays the role of mucus, increasing sperm mobility as well as increasing pleasure. You can find each of these products here in our online store.
