Pelvic Health Diet
(http://ow.ly/dqzP30jjWF1)

A healthy diet may not prevent or “cure” all pelvic health issues, but it can help lower your risk for them or make them more manageable once symptoms set in. Go for a mostly plant-based diet that includes healthy fat sources, such as nuts, avocado, and oily fish like salmon. Yogurt can also help, by providing helpful bacteria known as probiotics.

Restricting fluids before bed can make waking up in the middle of the night less likely.
