when you are pregnant, I recommend avoiding any chemicals on your body including hair coloring, hair removers etc. No one has studied them in pregnant female so we really don;t know if they are safe

In brief: Maybe

Advice is to avoid most harsh chemicals topically during pregnancy.
Especially true of bleaching agents and retin a (tretinoin).....While probably ok i would shave.
