Do you suffer with Bladder leakage if you cough or Sneeze? Have you had embarrassing moments or near misses during exercise classes? all started following the birth of a child or significantly worsened? thought it is normal and part of the deal with having kids? - Its NOT!
Issues with bladder control is a huge problem, it is often embarrassing (who likes to admit that they leak a little bit if they go on a bouncy castle?!) and also often seen as “normal” thing that happens especially after having a baby, so it is just accepted.
Well firstly it shouldn’t just be accepted, it is a common complication and also really responds well to treatment (good news bouncy castle fans!). A staggering 1 in 3 women report having had or experiencing bladder leakage following child birth. However it is not just related to childbirth it can occur at any age.
There are several different types of leakage – they can occur on their own or as a combination – for more information why not download our eBook on Bladder problems click here.
