In brief: Drink a lot of water
Many times, hemorrhoids in pregnancy are made worse by not hydrating well and thus constipation sets in.
Straining increases the risk of hemorrhoids. Increasing fiber intake also helps. You can use over the counter hemorrhoid remedies, which are safe to use during pregnancy.

In brief: Hydrocortisone
Hemorrhoids are common during pregnancy and even moreso after vaginal delivery.
Ointments or suppositories, especially those containing hydrocortisone, can relieve symptoms. High fiber diet, stool softeners, and plenty of fluids to minimize hard stools are good preventative measures too.
