Ask your doctor. My last c sections was 13 years ago but i think you could take a bath after the incision was healed and stapels/stiches are out
I had to wait for at least 6 weeks. But I agree I would check with your doctor.
My doctor told me 6 weeks. Ask your doctor before you decide to take one.
6 weeks. You can shower right after though. I had 3 c-sections.
hmm, I had 2 D&C and I do vaguely remember being told to avoid baths for a certain amount of time. But I do not remember that for my C-Section. Maybe because I did not have stitches, I was glued.
I took a bath as soon as the staples were out. So really I didn't have to wait. I was in the hospital for 5 days. I went home and the first thing I did was take a bath. But I would just ask your doctor.
Well i had 3 C-sections and felt horrible even to shower. I think a bath would have been alot more soothing , instead of sitting in the shower having to squat downn and having unbearable pain. But Yes i have to agree with Mamalynnsmith, after your wound has healed and staples are out ( unless you have those disolvable ones?
Quoting mamalynnsmith:Ask your doctor. My last c sections was 13 years ago but i think you could take a bath after the incision was healed and stapels/stiches are out
