Midwives slammed for discussing mum’s ‘unusual’ pubic hair – right after she had given birth

A mum has revealed the rather awkward conversation she had with her two midwives after giving birth

As we have seen recently, there are a wide variety of ways men and women can style their pubic hair – from landing strips to vajazzles and more.

Or if they prefer, they may choose to simply let it grow, au naturale.

But whatever a person decides to do with their body is completely up to them and it’s certainly not our place to comment on it.

This is perhaps why one mum was left feeling rather shocked after two midwives started openly discussing her pubic hair while she was in hospital.

The revelation came as part of a thread on Mumsnet about pubic hair, in which a woman pondered why some people are obsessed with shaving and waxing their “lady garden”.

Hundreds took the time to respond to the original post, sharing their own personal grooming methods.

One mum started by saying that she thinks most women completely remove their pubic hair nowadays.

She then went on to explain that the reason she thinks this, is because of a bizarre experience she had after giving birth.

The woman claims that while her midwives were stitching up a vaginal tear, they told her they thought her “full head” of pubic hair was “unusual”.

“I think full removal is really common,” she wrote. “The MWs who stitched up my second degree tear were both discussing my ‘full head’ and how unusual it was these days.

“My women’s health physio said the same.”

People on the thread were outraged by her words and slammed the midwives for being so unprofessional.

One said: “I hope you told all three of them to shut the f*** up and then reported them to their superiors?”

Another commented: “Agree, it’s not on for them to comment. Also, shaving can cause ingrown hair and infection and that’s not what you think any when pregnant.”

A third posted: “OMG I’m due no.2 in April and I will be mortified if the MW starts discussing my full bush!”

“How completely inappropriate,” added a fourth.
