    Hmm, the 'norm' is usually 2 weeks. If you think it's closed up I think you'll be fine. :flower:

    NESS CONGRATS!!!! i dont think ive spoke to you since you had lo, she is beautiful

    i got an infection too which was horrible but mw told me to make sure it stayed clean so as long as you dont put any product in the bath you should be ok!!!

    they made me take my dressing off myself and it was soooo scary, i thought id rip my stitches out x

    I was told not to take a bath until 6 weeks :( Maybe they are over-cautious where I am - I could really do with one too!

    I was told not to have a bath because of my stitches (I didn't have a CS) but they didn't tell me for how long :cry: . I was having tentative showers for about 2 months before my sister called me a silly sod and told me to just have a bath lol.

    It was wonderful haha
