  • did you ask your doctor? i never had a restriction on that. I took a bath as soon as I could. it helped with the pain from the stitches.

  • Six weeks???  Are you kidding me!

    I had a bath in the hospital the day after my first was born, and after my second I was told to soak in a warm bath with lavender oil every day to help heal my stitches (which weren't healing to well) and it did the trick too.
