Keep up your fluids
It might seem annoying to go to the toilet every half hour, but concentrated urine can irritate the bladder and make things worse. However, don’t go to the toilet “just in case” or every time you get the urge, try to hold on and increase your bladder capacity.
Try rocking back and forth on the toilet when emptying your bladder. This helps move the pressure of the baby off the bladder so it can empty properly, this will help reduce how often you need to go.
Pelvic Floor Exercises
Pelvic floor exercises performed throughout pregnancy results in more bladder control and can also help during labour. Keeping up with your pelvic floor exercises will also speed up your recovery post birth.
Try perineal massage around week 34 of your pregnancy. Your perineum (tissues and the pelvic floor muscle between your vagina and anus) can tear or have to be cut during the crowning of the baby’s head. The less of a tear or cut, the more chance the pelvic floor can repair and heal back to its original condition.
