First, I am 7 weeks pregnant with baby number 2. I would ask on my local mom’s group, but we are still keeping it a secret for now. I have tried looking online but can not find any information. Is it safe to take an Ice bath while pregnant? The only thing I am finding is not to take a hot bath, and to stay away from saunas, etc. Nothing on an ice bath. Extremely sore from a 1/2 marathon and want to soak in an ice bath.
Anything that drastically changes your body temperature likely warrants asking your doctor just to be safe.
I would say no since it makes your temperature drop quickly
Just soak in Epsom salt
A simple call ti your dr office would answer that faster than Google, tyoeing this out and waiting fir responses. Plus you would get an answer you know you can turst
I would suggest icing only the sore areas…
Words from a doc unless ur to the point of becoming hypothermic its safe
Call your doctor to ask they would know
I doubt its okay. But ask your doctor.
I wouldnt do an ice bath
You can call your obgyn and they can let you know
Talk to you doctor not Facebook.
Yes they are perfectly fine. You’re not going to want a hot bath as raising your body temperature too much for too long can negatively affect a fetus, a comfortably warm bath for a short period of time is fine, its been my only relief from SPD pains this pregnancy (I am 30 weeks but pain started at 14 weeks).
I would not. But a simple call to your OB would be beneficial.
I mean swimming is perfectly safe and even encouraged for inducing labor, getting exercise, etc and the water can be in the low 70’s. I don’t know if sitting in actual ice water is a good idea but you could still take a cold bath. Even hot baths are fine, just not hot tubs. Ask your doctor though
I personally wouldn’t risk it
I swam in freezing cold spring water for my body aches and my doctor loved it. Def ask, but couldn’t imagine why it would be a problem.
Talk to your doctor.
That would be a great question to ask your DOCTOR not facebook!
Call your doctor! Only way to be safe
