If you’ve got a pelvic floor that’s not behaving, you are certainly not alone. It’s estimated that up to around a third of women who have given birth (and some who haven’t) will experience some level of incontinence. And because it can be quite a common thing, it’s very easy for us to assume that it’s also normal.
You know the kind of thing – you have a joke with your mum friends over the fact you can’t go on a trampoline any more, or someone tells you that it’s just to be expected after you’ve had a baby. Or worse still, you’ve seen one of the ads recently for Tena Lady or Always which make it seem like leaking isn’t a problem as long as you’re wearing one of their special pads.
But it really really doesn’t have to be this way. There is actually a solution and all it takes is a little bit of effort with your pelvic floor exercises, and learning how to move effectively to both protect and strengthen your pelvic floor.
Take a look at this short video (it’s less than 4 minutes long) where I tell you all about 3 key things you can be doing to help yourself. This is assuming you’re doing your pelvic floor exercises already – because you are, aren’t you!
