Other Things That Can Help
In cases where the incontinence is not severely interrupting your lifestyle, doctors recommend certain types of exercises, such as Kegel exercises, to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic wall. Right after having a baby, a woman often has some issues with overactive bladder. These usually go away once the woman has rested and healed from the birth of her child.
If you are concerned about incontinence, and have just had a baby, then let your doctor know and she can recommend some good exercises to help you get the pelvic muscles strong and healthy again. Bladder problems can signal various issues, so if your symptoms don’t improve after some rest and exercising, then let your doctor know.
