swimming after delivery

I just had my baby girl 9 days ago...Is it ok if I go swimming once the bleeding stops? Or is there something else I should worry about?

  • I personally would wait until six weeks. But you can always call the doctors office and ask a nurse. That is what they are there for.

  • Personally, I would wait until at least 6 weeks. Despite chlorine treatments, public pools are pretty gross. I wouldn't want to risk infection.
