    You should probably only shower until the bleeding stops to avoid infections?? I thought that's what's advised? What did mw tell you about baths?

    Hun its fine to bath but the perfume in foam bath may irritate your skin and delay healing. I used both time 10 drops of tea tree oil mixed in a little milk and add that to your bath..it definately helps heal you quicker..

    Id say until you're healed steer clear of anything perfumy x

    Think you're supposed to just have a bath with nothing in it for the first wee while.

    I showered after my Lo was born, but I had a section so was told I could only kneel in bath anyways as couldn't submerge my scar. x
