DRINK UP

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Special Report -

Pelvic health phys­io­ther­a­pist and restora­tive ex­er­cise spe­cial­ist Sa­man­tha Cat­tach says you might feel like re­strict­ing your wa­ter in­take to re­duce the chances of blad­der leak­age, but you need to be well-hy­drated for a healthy blad­der, es­pe­cially if you’re breast­feed­ing.

“Your urine should be pale in colour and you should def­i­nitely drink when­ever you’re thirsty,” Sa­man­tha ad­vises. “Aim for at least two litres a day, but limit al­co­hol and caf­feine drinks be­cause they can ir­ri­tate the blad­der and in­crease your risk for urge in­con­ti­nence.”
