    public spa's are a no-no because of germies!

    and my midwife & GP both said the same thing as Witwicky I lived in them in the beginning - I had super painful cramping & it was my only relief!

    We are getting our spa installed in a few weeks!!! Finally, its been upright in the shed for 15 months... hope the rats haven't got into it...

    My neighbour is a spa maintenance man and he was saying the chemicals used in spa's were a NO NO during pregnancy... but dont they use chemicals in pools too... Maybe I should just put myself in a bubble for the next 20 weeks...

    Default What is the go with spas and baths?

    If the bath water was hot enough to cause any harm your first worry would likely be your scalded skin.

    Warm baths are fine. Spa's in clean water would also be fine - if the water looks manky don't go in.
    Common sense is a great tool to use in pregnancy

    I used to work in a pool and spa shop and the chemicals for spas (for the most part) are exactly the same as the ones for pools - just different packaging.


    We are about to move into a house that has a spa. I was under the impression that it was the temperature that was the issue.... I was kind of hoping that I could use it in the warmer months (when I'm heavy pregnant), without the heater on, and it would be ok? Should I be thinking twice?

    My ob said they are a no go but if i was desperate i could dangle my legs in it..but not actually go in it. the more your body is in it the worse it is re heat. There are also bacteria in many so need to be aware of that as well.

    It's a old wives tale about no baths during pregnancy it can cause infections! Lol my mil tricked me in my first pregnancy telling me this and as I had no idea what I was doing I believed her. I have baths this time (didn't want to with dd) I mainly have baths this time and norm with the kids lol they are lovely an warm.

    Pools and spas have the same chemicals I think spas are too hot but a normal temp (like not uncomfortable) are wonderful in pregnancy! We have a massive one too and I loved it when I was pregnant.

    I had 2 water births abd the middies did monitor the temp of the water but j can't for the life of me remember what it was!

    That sounds very weird about the spa jet/pressure points. If that were true you could easily just not sit in front of a jet?

    At this point, if I thought it worked, I'd be jamming myself against the jets :haha:
