Abstract

Urinary tract infections are common in pregnancy. In pregnancy urinary tract infections have an associated risk of premature labour. This study looks at the incidence of urinary tract infections and the method of perineal hygiene used after urination. Wiping back to front is associated with a greater risk of developing urinary tract infection than wiping front to back.
