Is it ok to have a bath longer than 5 mins?? Lock Rss

Hi,
I am missing my relaxing bath, as I was told you can only have a bath for 5-10 mins. I am 36 and half weeks pregnant and would really like a long relaxing bath... my back and front is sore and the weight between my legs on my vagina is quite painful after a long day. So I was wonderign is it ok to have a bath for 30 mins or so or will it harm my baby???

Hi Emma,
Thank you for your enquiry. It is fine to have long baths. It is a great way to ease discomfort and to relax. Make sure that you don’t get too hot as you may feel faint and get out slowly.
Best wishes,
Alex.
