August 17, 2007, Newsletter Issue #78: Pregnant With a Belly Button Ring

Tip of the Week

There are different beliefs as to what to do with your belly button ring when you're pregnant. Some women take their piercing out immediately upon finding out that they're pregnant, being afraid that the belly button ring will somehow interfere with their pregnancy.

Belly button rings will not harm your pregnancy or baby. Eventually, you will feel your piercing getting tight as your stomach gets larger, and if it's digging into your skin or feeling uncomfortable, you should take it out. You will probably need to get repierced or have your belly button ring reinserted by a piercer after you give birth. Never get a new piercing while you are pregnant, however, as the piercing is an open wound which can introduce bacteria and other foreign elements into your bloodstream.
