  • Iwould think if you have no more bleeding and everything seems fine than you can go ahead and do that, but maybe ask your doctor?

  • I would ask a doctor fist since you say you have stitches the dirty water can make it infected plus when I had both my babies when I left the hospital they told me I was to shower for the first 2 weeks so I would deffinatly ask your doctor before going swimming

  • You should wait until after your 6 week postpartum appointment. Sooner may introduce infection into your vagina, uterus, or infect your stitches.
    Congrats on your new baby :o)
