How to Manage Urinary Incontinence After Childbirth

urinary incontinence after childbirth

Congratulations on the delivery of your baby! Being a mom is hard, especially with postpartum issues such as incontinence arising. You may think that pregnancy aches and pains are long gone after having your child, but unfortunately these symptoms are sometimes here to stay. 

What is postpartum urinary incontinence?

Postpartum urinary incontinence is the need to constantly go to the bathroom and urinate. Those who gave birth vaginally develop incontinence as their pelvis and bladder muscles are weakened during childbirth. Incontinence is a common condition that women face after childbirth, with women over the age 35 and those who are obese experiencing a greater risk for developing incontinence. These symptoms may last up to a year and some women may experience it for longer. 

What are ways to manage urinary incontinence naturally after childbirth?

After giving birth, you may feel a need to find ways to manage your incontinence. Lucky for you, there are simple lifestyle changes you can make to help with urges and prevent leaks. 

  • Avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, spicy foods, and carbonated drinks. Also avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. These products cause bladder leakage.
  • Lose some weight to lessen the pressure on your bladder and pelvic floor.
  • Wear incontinence pads, such as SPC Extra Absorbent Thin Pads
  • Drink water frequently to make sure you are hydrated and avoid urinary tract infections
  • Stick to a fixed bathroom schedule to train and control your bladder

Can kegel exercises help with urinary incontinence after childbirth?

Absolutely! Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor exercises, are a great way to strengthen your bladder muscles and gain control over your pelvic floor after giving birth. You can do this next time you go to the bathroom by squeezing your bladder muscles tightly to stop the flow of urine and holding this for a few seconds then continuing to pee.
