Abstract:   (782 Views)
Women with urinary incontinence (UI) during pregnancy may have a greater of experiencing postpartum UI symptoms than women who do not. Pelvic floor muscle exercises can reduce the symptoms of urinary stress incontinence. This policy brief concisely summarizes research findings and policy recommendations to improve antenatal and postnatal pelvic floor muscle training. However, this policy does not work automatically and must be incorporated in primary health care service design and delivery. This policy brief discusses a clear recommendation based on the best evidence to improve prenatal care services. It argues that the key is high-quality prenatal care that is available, affordable, accessible, and compatible with the needs of pregnant women and health care providers.
