It is impos­si­ble to unequiv­o­cal­ly answer the ques­tion of whether it is pos­si­ble for preg­nant women to vis­it the bath­house. To enjoy the process and at the same time not harm the baby, you should approach this issue with all the nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions.

Of course, almost all gyne­col­o­gists agree that the bath and preg­nan­cy are incom­pat­i­ble. How­ev­er, if a woman is healthy, then she should not refuse to vis­it the bath­house. After all, such a pro­ce­dure has an unde­ni­able ben­e­fit — it will help you relax and unwind, as well as cleanse your­self (by the way, both phys­i­cal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly). In a hot room, you can con­cen­trate on your own body as much as pos­si­ble, and this will have a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the course of preg­nan­cy. In addi­tion, in this way you can acti­vate the hid­den resources of the body — after all, after the bath, cool water pro­ce­dures are sure to fol­low.

But the bath dur­ing preg­nan­cy plan­ning has absolute­ly no con­traindi­ca­tions. You should not vis­it the bath­house only if you are not yet com­plete­ly sure that con­cep­tion has occurred.

Dur­ing a trip to the bath, both the cir­cu­la­to­ry and res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tems are won­der­ful­ly trained, and this, in turn, improves the blood sup­ply to the pla­cen­ta and pre­vents its ear­ly aging. Thus, pre­ven­tion of preeclamp­sia, intrauter­ine hypox­ia, uter­ine tone is car­ried out. Also, steam and warm air have a good effect on the con­di­tion of a wom­an’s skin, reduc­ing the like­li­hood of stretch marks. With reg­u­lar vis­its to the bath, you can get rid of such unpleas­ant man­i­fes­ta­tions of preg­nan­cy as der­ma­to­tox­i­co­sis, itch­ing or urticaria. In addi­tion, bath pro­ce­dures con­tribute to: reduc­ing exces­sive mus­cle ten­sion, increas­ing the elas­tic­i­ty of lig­a­ments, strength­en­ing immu­ni­ty, reduc­ing exces­sive ner­vous ten­sion, and pre­vent­ing vari­cose veins.

How­ev­er, there are con­traindi­ca­tions to such a use­ful event. So, absolute from a med­ical point of view are: fever, epilep­sy, ischemia and hyper­ten­sion, bronchial asth­ma, com­pli­cat­ed preg­nan­cy or recent surgery. When going to the bath­house, a woman should ade­quate­ly assess her well-being and do not for­get to pro­vide her­self with a plen­ti­ful drink.
