Are there ways to avoid postpartum incontinence?

Protecting the pelvic floor before an injury happens is the best way to avoid postpartum incontinence. During pregnancy, you can protect your pelvic floor by getting clear, tailored pelvic floor exercises from a physical therapist. Consulting your doctor on ways to secure your pelvic floor, depending on how your pregnancy is going and any specific pregnancy considerations you must address is also a good idea. Maintaining a core-strengthening regimen, such as prenatal yoga, during your pregnancy. High-impact movements, such as jumping jacks or jump-roping, should be avoided because they put more pressure on the pelvic floor.
