MOTHER

Because of compression of the growing uterus, complaints of cough, sneeze, and urinary incontinence while laughing begin. This is seen in those who have given birth before. Pelvic base muscles and birth muscles are strengthened by stopping to urinate while urinating and continuing to urination 10 sec later (Kegel exercises). Because the growing abdomen due to the growing womb compresses on the chest cage, it may cause difficulty breathing. To rest, not to lie on back, and to eat frequently and less may reduce complaints. To take care for consumption of salt, to measure tension frequently will be useful.
