I went for a bikini wax today, I may have a section and wanted to be prepared. Now, I don't usually go so low and maybe being pregnant makes it worse - but I thought I'd cry it was so sore! So, could I safely use Immac instead?

Thanks Rubymoon. Can I ask, where were you able to confirm that? I couldn't find anything on their website.

I have used it while pregnant, for same reasons as you! But because of hormonal changes (or something) your skin might be extra sensitive so don't leave it on as long as you normally would. I got a lovely reaction to it on that area, and thank god I went a few days overdue or the docs would have been looking at a scabby hoo haa. Apparently waxing does hurt more when you're pregnant too.

OP I see you're in Cork - have you tried City Wax? I can honestly say it's 99% pain free, and that's during pregnancy too.They did a fab wax a week before my section - midwives were well impressed!! HTH :wv
