I don't think it's "important".

Suzie, I'm not a BTDT, but I think it depends on you. Personally I NEVER shave there (my skin is too sensitive), but I will go to get waxed during the summer or before going on vaca. Since I want to go the midwife/homebirth route, I have absolutely no qualms about going into labor with a, LOL, full bush. My legs probably won't even be waxed (I don't shave anything except my pits).

If, however, you feel like it is important to you, I would go to get waxed rather than attempt to shave where you can't even see and barely reach . . . but if you feel comfortable shaving, and you feel like it is important to you, I'm sure there are other women who do do that.

But trust me, the doctors have seen everything. They don't care about how it looks, they just care if it is clean. Multiple Gyno's have told me that, hehe.

Heehee, TMI, but DH trimmed that area for me when my belly got too big to see what I was doing.

Suzie, as others have said, Drs and nurses care more about the cleanliness of the area than about the amount of hair you have...
That said, DH did a general shave for me when I was close to my due date, and I did a quick "touch up by memory" the day of, while I showered.
Also... it depends on how much you have down there. As most mediterranean women, and with the added bonus of PCOS, I am VERY hairy, and I would have been terribly embarrassed to go with a "full bush" (Adrienne, LOL!), But if you are on the hairless team, I would opt for a simple trim!

Thanks, girls for all the advice!


In general, I prefer the area to have a "cleaned up" appearance.

I will tell you as someone who does paps, I don't notice how much or how little hair woman have. As long as you are clean and don't have glitter (which I have seen) I don't pay attention.
I didn't worry about the Ladyscaping last time around, but this time I will be shaving myself before my c-section (well probably make DH do it). The dry crappy hospital razer prep when it grew back itched like crazy and there was nothing I could do because I was healing.

I get Dh to trim every month once I can't see anymore. I'm thinking about letting him shave it - I did that once before and didn't have a problem with ingrowns. I read an article about using hair conditioner instead of shaving cream, using only a brand new razor and shaving in the direction of hair growth. Not sure if those helped or I was just lucky.
