I had my c-section 5 weeks ago. I'm not bleeding anymore & I'm tired of taking showers. When can I relax in the tub again?

  • As long as stitches/staples are out and you aren't bleeding you should be fine. Also, that you are able to get in and out of the bathtub.

  • What does it say in your discharge instructions?
