Barring any sensitive skin issues you might have, it’s generally considered safe for pregnant women to get waxed during pregnancy. Thanks to your hormones, your hair is probably growing at a much faster rate now, which means you might find yourself more fixated on hair removal than ever before. While some mamas simply prefer shaving, others find it much more convenient (especially as their belly grows) to get waxed instead. But if you find your skin is more sensitive these days, try using a soothing lotion before and after waxing sessions to reduce any additional redness or swelling. Just make sure you go to a reputable (and clean) salon or spa.
