Depending how mommy is acting but my girls get a bath the day after they have babies, it must be my medical training cuz I think they just feel better getting clean and brushed, my vet says its ok and as of yet there have been no problems
I would maybe make a quick phone call to confer with your vet, and make sure you ask what kind of shampoos are safe at this point, because I'm sure the last thing you want to do is bathe her in chemicals that could harm the pups if they come into contact with it through nursing, etc.
When I give my girls a bath after giving birth I use johnson and johnson's baby shampoo......and no conditioners, just a good rinse. This shampoo is safe to use as an eye wash for humans (have seen it used on geriatric patients) and of course safe for babies....its what my vet said to use.
