The best part? The preggo-friendly razor is under $20
If you’ve ever been pregnant, you know the hell that is shaving below your belly. It doesn’t matter how big you are or how much of a flexible yoga-ninja you claim to be, at a certain point zero pregnant women can see their hoo-ha (or anything south of it). But shaving just became a whole lot easier thanks to this new, mother of all inventions.
It’s hard enough to slip on a pair of shoes (let alone tie them), pick up a dropped item, hold a child, get out of a car — you get the drift. When you attempt any level of self-care in the Southern hemisphere, it feels an even more colossal feat. But fear not expectant women, there’s a new product on the market meant to help you even in your ninetieth trimester — the UltraFlexx Handle.
The stainless steel UltraFlexx Handle fits on any disposable or reusable razor and reaches approximately 20 inches from your hand to whatever body part is in need of a good shave. Not only would this be ideal for pregnant women, but if you suffer from back pain, have been injured, or have a really small space in which to shave your legs (man, I could’ve used one of these in college), this is the product for you.
The razor is secured to the handle via a velcro strap so the possibilities really are endless. Husband has a hairy back. Check. Haven’t seen your peaches and cream in a fortnight? Check check. Feel like shaving some really, really hard to reach areas that rarely see the light of day (no judgment here) — well, you get the drift.
I was giant (read: mammoth) during all three of my pregnancies. It didn’t matter what I did, I took a pregnancy test one day and couldn’t see my feet the next. I’d all but given up on self-care of the shaving variety but started to panic as my due date drew near. Omg, I thought, the doctor is going to be repulsed by the amount of hair at her eye level. Little did I know doctors do not give one fuck about things like this, but alas, I was convinced I’d be talked about for years to come in the maternity ward.
After trying (and failing) multiple times, I finally had to call my husband in to get the job done. Needless to say, it’s a day we’ve never spoken of since.
The UltraFlexx Handle would be the perfect baby shower gift to give a friend or relative who is looking to keep their forest trimmed, someone who is injured, or for someone who really needs a damn break. At only $20 on Amazon, it’s a no brainer.
It almost makes me want to have another baby. Haaaaahaaaaaaaa. HAAAAAAAA. Oh, that was funny.
