In honour of World Continence Week I want to remind you that It’s not okay to pee your pants, not even a little drop! This is an issue that must be addressed and although it is common, it is NOT normal. “I can’t jump, sneeze, cough or squat without peeing”. How about the women who attend workouts wearing a pad because they “leak” but are too embarrassed to say anything? Clients have come to my Programs and tell me that their “Trainer or Doctor” told them it was “normal”, especially after pregnancy. It is absolutely not “ok or normal”. You can be affected whether or not you have had a baby, this is not just for the women who have birthed children.
I’ve put together some of my favourite posts. There is help. I am a hard core athlete, I’ve had 3 babies and I know what it feel like to have pelvic floor dysfunction. I can jump on trampolines, run, play with my kids and all without pads and leakage. I put the time in, saw a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and got educated. Please share this post with someone.
People should not be embarrassed or live in silence.
