When should you take out nipple piercings when pregnant?

I would recommend you wait until you start dischargingcolostrum from the nipples, then removal of the jewellery is not necessary. Changing the jewellery to PTFE* barbells (*flexible surgical Teflon) be a good option and would be simpler for cleaning and maintaining the piercings during breast feeding. Many of my clients have successfully maintained there nipple piercing using this method and have had no issues with breast feeding. Ultimately it's up to you and your comfort level.
