Taking A Bath After Water Breaks

I've heard during my last pregnancy, and this one, that if you have bad contractions then it's good to take a bath to relax, and feel better as long as your water hasn't broken. I think showers are o.k. Does anyone know why you can't take a bath after your water has broken?

Because it can introduce bacteria into your cervix.

Sorry, uterus. It can introduce bacteria into your uterus.

Took a shower after my water broke while I was waiting to go to the hospital....man am I glad I did! I didn't get to take another shower until Friday morning (my water broke Wednsday!). I found that it really helped since I was having bad back labour. Good Luck.
