What happens if urinary incontinence occurs during pregnancy?

Urinary incontinence commonly occurs during pregnancy. This is due to the increased pressure on your bladder. It is important to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to help control your bladder. If urinary incontinence persists, special thin absorbent pads can be worn under clothing to absorb any residual leaking.
