How To Prevent UTI During Pregnancy
Urinary Tract Infections (known as UTIs) are more common in women than in men. During pregnancy, women are more susceptible to UTIs due to hormonal and physiological changes in the body. Due to some changes in the body during pregnancy, women are more likely to get UTIs. These infections can cause pain and discomfort and in severe cases, can lead to kidney problems which are dangerous for both mom and baby. Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent UTIs during pregnancy and with a little bit of effort, you can protect yourself and your baby from this common issue.

Bacteria is a leading cause of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and if left untreated, a kidney infection resulting from a UTI can have severe consequences for pregnant women and their unborn child.
