Yes, I’m an IBCLC. I’m usually writing about breastfeeding, attachment parenting, sleep deprivation and relationships. I help women and their families with breastfeeding issues and challenges, among other things. But you know what, I also have pubic hair. And since it is no longer 1970, I shave. Or wax. Or trim…and you know what else I want to say? I’m sick of it!! Aren’t the legs and armpits enough? On top of this I also wax my eyebrows, highlight my hair and occasionally sleep. I’d really love one less thing to do (without it being assumed I’m a “hippy” because I’ve stopped waxing)…NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH BEING CALLED A HIPPY!
You may be someone who has always worn their pubic hair proudly and loudly but honestly, let’s all agree here that regardless of whether or not you have hair on your labia the reality is that we have all thought about our pubic hair…especially when we are about to give birth knowing that the entire medical team or onlooking family members will be looking at our vaginas. This is why I’m writing about it! We all think about it whether we primp our pubic hair or not…it’s there. In all it’s bushy glory. Or not.
