Many pregnant women have a piercing of some kind. You might have an ear piercing, a tongue piercing, or a navel piercing. No matter where you have a piercing, chances are you’re wondering, Now that I’m pregnant, do I need to take out my piercing?
There is no simple answer to this question. Every woman’s skin reacts differently to pregnancy hormones. You may find that your jewelry, which you’ve been wearing fine before you became pregnant, is starting to bother you now. Since it’s common for pregnancy to make your skin more sensitive, keeping the jewelry in may be uncomfortable. If this is the case, you should probably take it out.
If you decide to take out your jewelry, it’s a good idea to contact a piercer for advice on how easy it will be to refit after your baby is born.
