  • Yes as long as there is JUST WATER with no soap.

    The people above are obviously forgetting that women give birth in water every day.

  • The only study I know about proves that baths are safe, but I still wouldn't want to.

    I had my water ruptured (low = heavy) for over a week (at term) and still lived a normal life. But I preferred to avoid baths. Showers-- several a day, though, lol! It is ...messy!

  • Water breaking doesn't necessarily have to do with labor, anon. I don't understand your reply.

    What does soap have to do with it??

    BTW, I am a 'people above.' Why do you think that I forgot?
