How do hemorrhoids occur?

During pregnancy your blood volume increases. During labor, the pressure inside the veins of the anus is increased by pushing and the passage of the baby through the birth canal. It is this increased venous pressure and over-extension of the anus that is typically responsible for developing painful, external hemorrhoids during childbirth. How can hemorrhoids be prevented?
