Personal Hygiene
More Risk of Infection if you Shave

Vaginal Delivery OR Caesarean Section

Do not shave or wax your abdominal or pubic area for 7 days prior to your due date or booked caesarean section.

Research shows that shaving causes tiny cuts in the skin. These cuts give bacteria a way to enter the skin, which could cause infection.

Avoiding shaving and waxing prior to delivery is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Safer Healthcare Now!
