Belly piercings and pregnancy

Recently we had an enquiry from someone that just found out they were pregnant and was worried about their belly piercing. The concern was that the belly bar that she presently had was steel and didn't want to remove the navel bar and wanted to know if we could help.

Of course the problem with steel belly bars is that you can't leave them in for scans and that the steel bar wouldn't adjust to the way your body changes during pregnancy. Standard steel body jewellery would not adjust to the way your body changes during pregnancy and because your skin tightens with the growing baby steel jewellery can tear your piercings.

Miss Shimmer does offer pregnancy belly bars. These bars are great for leaving in for scans as they are made of quality PTFE and bend. Our new range of pregnancy barbells are an ideal solution. These come in a pack of 10 standard nickel free flexi belly bars with 10"s of flexible wire included so that you can cut it to the length you require and re-thread it with the ball. The flexible wire is made of Bioplast which is also nickel free and totally safe to use with any balls you wish, this also means that you don't have to remove your body jewellery during pregnancy.

Well that's enough for today got to go do some work, until next time…..take it easy
