So i was reading about ways to encourage labor.. and i read taking a really hot bath? what would that even do and is that safe for your baby?

I'm not positive but I don't think a really hot bath is safe, I know a hot tub isn't so I would think not.

Just make sure you are hydrated, have water with you, and get out if you start to feel to hot... I went into a hottub when I was pretty pregnant but not for long periods of time.

I wouldn't do it. My doc says a warm bath is fine but not hot. Hot meaning not much hotter than what you'd bathe a one year old in.
