Can we lash pregnant ladies?

Firstly – always check with your insurance company, as this may vary where you are in the world.
My insurance company does allow me to lash pregnant ladies.
Lashing pregnant woman has always been a controversial topic in this industry and we get asked this a lot during training sessions. The team at Fabulash Professional encourage you all to consider the following when you are presented with a pregnant client so that you can make an informed decision whether you lash pregnant clients or not.

What is anaphylaxis? It is a severe allergic reaction, caused by the release of allergic chemicals, histamine. It is defined as a serious, systemic, allergic or hypersensitivity reaction that can be life‐threatening or fatal.

The usual treatment for acute anaphylaxis during pregnancy is the same non-pregnancy. Adrenaline is the treatment of choice, intravenous fluids, and other medications to maintain blood pressure. Low blood pressure in the mother can lead to low blood flow to vital organs in the foetus, especially the brain.

The best treatment of anaphylaxis during pregnancy is the prevention of anaphylaxis in the first place. Patch testing for products should be avoided during pregnancy to minimise the potential for anaphylaxis as a result.

When pregnant ladies lay on their backs the weight of the uterus can compress a major blood vessel called the vena cava. It can also be extremely uncomfortable for a pregnant woman to lay flat on her back for any length of time and as we know lash treatments are not quick.

Unfortunately because the industry is unregulated and insurance companies are not lash specific there are no real laws or rules or even guidelines given to us to follow. Therefore we must use the facts given to us by the medical professionals and come to the best conclusion possible to ensure the safety of our clients and their unborn babies.
Also every pregnant woman will be experiencing major changes to her body during the pregnancy and for several months after and this can cause a real imbalance of hormones in her body and, as such, she may struggle with retention of her eyelash extensions.
Of course, there will be pregnant women that want to feel beautiful and feminine during her pregnancy and there are many techs that lash pregnant ladies day in day out, and I have no problem with that, but ultimately the decision must be down to you – it’s your business and your rules.

I do recommend that if you choose to lash a pregnant client, then you sit down and thoroughly discuss all of the above with any pregnant client before you go ahead with the treatment.
