Is a c-section a better alternative for women with an overactive bladder? No incontinence, just overactive.

In brief: No

No advantages to a csection for oab.
Oab is common in pregnancy since the baby is shrinking bladder capacity and making your kidneys filter more blood and make more pee. After you deliver, if symptoms persist, see a urologist.

In brief: Probably not

Whether or not a c-section can help to prevent pelvic floor damage and future incontinence is somewhat controversial, but it is highly unlikely that a c-section will be of any benefit in someone with oab.
