How soon after giving birth and getting stitches can I get in a hot tub I gave birth on October 4th 2015?
I would give it at: Least 10-14 days before immersion in water. Showers would be okay.

Please take precautions and shower until you have recovered completely. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
