QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hello, I am around 6.5 weeks pregnant.

Could you please tell me if it is safe to use hair removing cream and facial bleach during pregnancy especially for facial unwanted hair.

I had done laser hair reduction on my upper lips and chin and ever since then I have been using hair removing cream .

ANSWER

Generally, we do not recommend any unnecessary chemical use during pregnancy. That said, I am not aware of any research that shows that these products are definitely harmful to babies. So you will have to use your own judgment. Good luck!
