No, unfortunately I do not have any advice on how to make it any easier! However, I wanted to share my experience as I just had my daughter on the 23rd and give you a hint Before I was pregnant, I was always clean shaven "down there." While shaving drove me NUTS once I couldn't see anymore, I just couldn't let it get too out of hand so I'd struggle for quite a while in the shower while it was done. I thought about getting a wax, but really just didn't have the money as they're super expensive everywhere nearby. Everyone ALWAYS told me, "You don't need to shave for delivery, the doctor won't care" because this is what I WAS worried about. Thinking back, it's true that during the delivery I really wouldn't have cared what my lady parts looked like. Nevertheless, I only had a little stubble when my daughter was born, and I want to tell you why I am SO THANKFUL I shaved, so that you might consider it when people tell you that you don't need to worry about it. Have you ever had a period when your hair down there was really long? For those of you that don't shave this obviously doesn't apply, but I know for me when I was so used to being clean shaven if it ever got bad around that time of the month, I was miserable. Postpartum blood is no joke, and I was that much less miserable about it because I didn't have to deal with it getting caught in long hair I'm not used to anyway. Shaving is pretty much out of the question after delivery because of soreness, so I just wanted to share why it was worth it for me to "Shave by faith, not by sight."
