Shaving your legs while pregnant can be interesting. You're not as easily flexible (for all those fancy one-legged stands in the shower) and pregnancy super charges your hormones which can make your legs more sensitive to shaving creams and other shaving gear.

To keep your legs smooth throughout your pregnancy, follow these tips... Shave in the bath. Pregnancy can cause random dizzy spells and make you more tired. The last thing you need is a nasty fall in the shower. You can sit in the tub, or place a towel on the side of the tub and sit on that. Soak your legs before shaving for a smoother shave and to have some pregnancy relaxation time. Try a soothing bathtub soak addition like one of the bath salts from Erbaviva made with Sea Salt, Epsom Salts and moisturizing organic oils scented with organic essential oil blends. Stay clear of waxing. Technically, waxing is safe for pregnancy, but because your hormones may make your skin more sensitive, waxing could be more painful than usual. Avoid chemicals. Products like depilatory cream are not a known problem during pregnancy, but just to be safe, it's always wise to avoid chemicals if you've got other options. Along those lines opt for an organic, toxic free shave gel too. I LOVE vedaDUDE Glide Organic Shave Gel - it's a splurge, but SO worth it. For smooth after-shave moisture try Earth Mama Body Butter which combines organic calendula and calming organic chamomile with essential oils in a shea butter body lotion. Get some help if you need it. If you can't reach your legs easily, enlist your partner to help you out. It's better than stretching your body into oddball positions. If you have laser hair removal, discuss the safety of this with your prenatal provider before having treatments during your pregnancy.
