  • Go ahead and take a bath if you want to. Plus, I have heard that the mucus plug grows back. Most doctors agree not to bathe after your water breaks, but that is to be on the safe side as the chance of you getting an infection is pretty low. So I would definitely not worry about anything if your water is intact.

  • you can take a bath. docs usually recommend that you don't bathe after your water breaks though.
