hot baths????? Lock Rss

hi there!!!
my name is kristy i am 19 weeks pregnant and have heard it is not safe for the baby if you have hot baths...while i dont actually have hot baths i do enjoy a fairly hot shower i was wondering what are the dangers of a hot bath to bub and is it the same danger if you are having a hot shower???

thanks for your time,look forward to hearing from you smile
Hi Kristy,
It is safe to have warm baths and showers when pregnant. They are a great way to relax and are even better in labour. The professionals are mainly concerned with having showers or baths that are so hot that a pregnant woman may faint.
Best wishes,
Alex.
