Which of the women above is peeing a little bit? Chances are, at least a few.
As it turns out one in three women experience urinary incontinence after having a baby. The good news is that urinary control is something that can be regained. In other words, if you wee yourself a little bit (like Kate Winslet), this isn't something you have to live with forever.
To repeat that: if you had a baby recently (or years ago!) and you occasionally leak pee, YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT ! So many people think they have to just accept a new hardship as a new mother. Not true.
You can regain confidence that you aren't going to accidentally pee when you exercise (think running, jumping jacks, CrossFit, etc.), when you sneeze, laugh out loud, or simply when you have to go to the bathroom.
Urinary incontinence is one of those things "no one talks about". We're here to help start that conversation!
Women in non-US countries receive preventative pelvic floor strengthening therapy and devices as a standard course of care. On Episode 55 of Fourth Trimester Podcast, we speak with the founders of Yarlap, a device that improves muscle control and helps women recover from urinary incontinence.
