Hi! I've suffered from a small cluster of piles throughout my pregnancy. Until now I have managed to keep them under control with anusol. However, during the last couple of days they have really swelled up and are agony - anusol is not helping. Anyone got any tips?! I'm also feeling a bit embarrassed as I know the midwives will see them when I'm in labour. I'm also terrified about pushing. But I guess the midwives are used to this sort of thing, right?
