Another concern is getting a uti or other vaginal infection because of bacteria. To cut down on your risk youre just supposed to pee before and after you get out of the tub. (Thats what I got told anyways)

Baths are fine just don't make it hot. You don't want to raise your body temp over 101

You can take a bath just make sure the water temp is not to hot or it can harm the baby. Water can't get in there because of the mucos plug.
