Pregnancy incontinence? Don't suffer in silence.

Friday, 23 September 2016

We all know that Women's bodies go through huge changes during pregnancy. As well as the obvious ones - swollen feet, raging hormones and stretch marks - there are other effects that other Women may feel a little squeamish talking to you about.

For example, did you that around two thirds of women suffer from some form of incontinence during pregnancy? Perhaps a small leak when coughing or sneezing or unfortunately for some, a more pronounced leak. There is no need to suffer in silence Ladies!



Personally I have a weak bladder all my life, it still plagues me now at 30 years old, with numerous trips to the bathroom every night. While I was pregnant I found myself using the bathroom even more often -like most Women. Then once the third trimester hit, I suddenly didn't feel so confident laughing freely.

With a little Lady tap dancing on my bladder all day and night, I started to feel that I was losing control and would sometimes leak a little - pretty understandable with an 8lb plus baby using your bladder as a bean bag! Once you find someone to open up to about it, it is surprising to know how many Women suffer with this during pregnancy.

While there are plenty of things you can do to help strengthen up your pelvic floor control after childbirth, it's also important to regain your confidence during your pregnancy and be able to freely laugh again!




I would recommend visiting Hartman Direct where they sell a huge range of incontinence products to help you deal with pregnancy incontinence. The website helps you work out which product would best suit your needs using the handy selector tool. It will ask a few multiple choice questions about your situation, before recommending the products they think would work best for you. 

Products on sale here range from very discreet pads to full disposable briefs and bed pads for those with a more severe issue - all with a variety of absorbency levels. 

Please don't suffer in silence Ladies.
