14A Shave, An Enema, And Episiotomy Are Mandatory

Millennial moms, listen up: your body, your rules! Gone are the days when doctors would perform unnecessary procedures like shaving away all your hair down there, giving you an enema and cutting you open. If your doctor is still a big fan of all three of these things, you need

to find another doctor. Of course, some situations might arise where a shave, an enema or an episiotomy are necessary. If you do need stitches, it's easier to stitch skin without hair getting in the way, so a shave might need to happen. An episiotomy might be important if your baby is stuck in the birth canal and you can't stretch any wider on your own. And while an enema may help move labor along, no nurse is going to be volunteering to give you one of those!
