In brief: Well,

After pregnancy, incontinence problems can be because childbirth weakens the pelvic floor muscles, which can cause an overactive bladder.
Childbirth also may contribute to bladder control problems because of the damage to the nerves that control the bladder; an episiotomy cut ; and dislocation of urethra and bladder during pregnancy.
