Just wanting to know if having a hot shower is okay

Hi Alex
I am 6 weeks pregnant and just wanting to know if having a hot shower is okay. I have heard that I shouldn`t have a hot bath but during the recent cold weather and after a long day at work I love nothing better than a hot shower, is this safe for the baby?

Answer: Hi Em, This is fine but make sure that you have some fresh air in the bathroom as you may feel dizzy if the shower all steams up. Best wishes, Alex
