Whilst some women wear makeup throughout their pregnancy and choose to on the delivery day, others don’t give it a second thought.
Wearing makeup is a personal choice and is certainly not a risk for women. In most cases it is easy to remove and can be if a request is made by the hospital either before or during labor.
For a planned c-section, most hospitals request that women avoid wearing jewelry, nail polish and makeup because there is surgery involved.
If you are mindful about how you look after delivery, you can always pack yourself a little bag of essentials including a face cloth to freshen yourself up, some lip balm and mascara to give you a more comfortable look and feel like yourself.
Chances are, you won’t even be thinking twice about makeup when you’ve got your baby in your arms.
