Hi Anonymous!

Thanks for your question and welcome!

There aren't any published studies I could find regarding pregnancy and laser hair removal but many health care professionals would not recommend it, because the outcome on an unborn baby is unknown. They may recommend waiting until after the birth.

The laser center themselves may prefer to perform these services after you have your baby. Although if you are not yet pregnant, it may be find to go ahead, as it could be several months before you get pregnant and your laser treatments should be done by then.

It's really a decision that's up to you - but you may want to run it by your health care provider too.

Our best to you!
