Taking a Bath While Pregnant
Video taken from the channel: womens health
Baths are perfectly safe in pregnancy if you follow a few simple rules: Keep your bathwater warm, not hot. 98.6 degrees F is just perfect and feels great. Avoid baths after your water has not broken. If you meet these criteria, you can take a bath every day until you give birth. Tip: While prepping for that warm bath, skip the bubbles and scented oils and salts, as they can alter the vagina’s acidic balance, which can cause thrush, a common yeast infection.
While thrush is treatable, not all treatments may be safe during pregnancy, so talk to your health care provider. Pregnancy makes changes in your skin texture, and harsh bath products may take a toll on your skin. Use a softer loofah while bathing to protect your skin and to enjoy your bathing experience during pregnancy.
Do not use unfiltered bathing water especially if you live in areas that have contaminated water supply. While a hot bath might seem like just what the doctor ordered after a hard day of being pregnant, make sure the water isn’t too hot first. There are so many dos and don’ts you need to be aware of while pregnant, and the temperature of your bathwater is one that you might not know about. But it’s okay for most pregnant women to take a bath. (Your practitioner may recommend that you not take baths if you have vaginal bleeding or ruptured membranes, meaning your water has broken or is leaking.) To make sure that your bath isn’t too hot, test the water on your forearm or wrist.
It should feel comfortable – not too hot. Additional safety tips. A few more things to bear in mind when bathing during pregnancy: Monitor your body temperature while bathing to prevent overheating. Never take a hot bath when you have a fever.
If you begin sweating profusely, get out of the tub immediately and cool yourself down by drinking lots of water. A long hot bath is more dangerous during pregnancy than taking a dip in a hot tub while pregnant. When your upper body remains out of the water, your circulation can prevent hyperthermia. You can take a quick hot bath to relieve cramps and pain during pregnancy.
Don’t bath for long duration. Limit your use of bubble bath when taking a bath while pregnant, and avoid using bubble bath more than twice a month. 3 Soak for no more than one hour. Avoid staying in the bath for more than one hour to cut down on your risk of infection. During pregnancy, for safety reasons, it is in your best interest to stick specifically with the unscented Epsom salt that has no oils or herbs added.
Using Epsom salt in your bath is generally safe, but it never hurts to seek your doctor’s permission before incorporating it into your bath time routine. An easy guideline to follow is to keep your bath at body temperature, so 37°C. If you’d like your bath to be warmer than this, you’re advised not to stay in the water for longer than ten minutes, as this is how long it takes for your body temperature to change.
