Tatyana Wright. : Hi! I'm Tatyana. This is Haute Mama; the maternity life style series offers you diet style beauty and product advice, so keep you one haute mama. Here we have a lot of beautiful pieces here on the table. What here are the options for temporary pieces? Maria Tash: There is a lot of different styles that you can use for your naval. Anything from the illustrious to petite, solitaire looking joy that's actually the inside is hidden with a little disc. What you can do when you're pregnant is either get a longer bar, which is what a lot of people do or you can switch to some sort of flexy option where this is plastic tubing, this is great for people who are taking MRI's etcetera. Tatyana Wright: I guess if you know you're going to have a scheduled C-Section, this might be a good option for you. Maria Tash: That's true, and it will count for your expansion, so yes. Tatyana Wright: What this, this is glass or plastic? Maria Tash: That is glass, it's true. Another option, great because there is no metallic part. I have had the cases with certain clients that have put tape over their piercings because the doctor couldn't figure out how to get it out, or they couldn't figure out how to get it out. They tape it to prevent like you're hard, started again, got for bit. Almost everyone I know keeps the metal bar and if not the flexy options. Tatyana Wright: I have my own naval pierced, like I got a longer bar and I can use my existing pieces Maria Tash: I think you should. You have no redness. I mean it's flush but I think we should give a little bit more room for your last month. Tatyana Wright. : Remember, everyone's skin is different. You may find you don't need to change your jewelry at all but if you do be sure to come to a reputable piercer and have it professionally changed. For more information visit www.hautemamaonline.com.
