When you realise... you need a different belly ring!
Firstly congratulations, you're expecting a baby and that's pretty damn exciting! But chances are you're reading this because you've just had 'that moment' ... oh yes, I've been there, when you try to navigate past furniture and your fast expanding tummy seems to protrude further than you recall and you embarrassingly collide with objects! And OUCH your belly piercing - which is already tight and sore from your expanding belly - is the first thing to make contact. If this hasn't happened to you yet, it probably will soon.
Do I need to remove my belly ring for pregnancy? Absolutely NOT! You simply need the right type of body jewellery to accommodate your navel piercing during this exciting journey of pregnancy. We have a huge selection of maternity belly rings for our expecting mums.
Flexible and comfortable, these cute belly rings are comprised of surgical grade PTFE and are hypoallergenic. They start off extra long, you can optionally cut them down to a smaller size, although unless you are buying a few pregnancy belly bars, we suggest you leave some length as things will get tighter soon enough and your navel will certainly feel the stretch. To cut, simply use a pair of scissors and cut on a slight angle. Then use a belly ring ball to screw a new thread onto the PTFE thread. Simple and so much more comfortable than steel belly rings during pregnancy.
I need it yesterday!! My belly piercing is already sore! We understand that most maternity belly rings are purchased right at that moment when your tummy reaches an unbearable size. We offer express post options at checkout so that you can have your jewellery within 1-2 business days.
I'm in the early days of pregnancy do I need this? Perhaps not yet, but you will! As your tummy grows your belly piercing elongates and this is what makes wearing surgical steel belly rings during pregnancy uncomfortable. We recommend purchasing your maternity belly bar well in advance so that when 'that day' happens, you're well prepared.
What will happen to my belly piercing after pregnancy? You can continue to enjoy your belly piercing and return to regular belly rings after pregnancy. Okay, we'll admit it, your skin is going to take a small beating, you can't carry around a sackful of love inside your tummy without leaving a few marks and scars to tell the story. However every women is different, and even if your belly tells the story of childbirth, that is a beautiful story worth celebrating. Put on your bikini and tell the world, and better yet, glam up that belly with sensational belly rings. You deserve it mum!
