You are not alone.
Many women report leaking urine during their pregnancy and into postpartum. Leaking urine is medically called Urinary Incontinence (UI). For some women, UI that began during pregnancy persists after delivery as chronic UI. In addition, women who are incontinent during pregnancy, even if they become continent after delivery, are more likely to develop
incontinence later in life (ref 1).
There are different types of UI like leaking with laughing or sneezing, leaking with a strong urge to urinate or even a mixture of both.
So when this happens to us, what do we do? Most of us reach out to our girlfriends, sisters or mothers and it is all too common that we hear similar stories that reinforce the thought that we just have to deal with this issue or that there is nothing you can do about it.
But there is good news- you CAN do something about it. Your pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that affect your ability to hold in your pee. If you optimize those muscles, you can help improve your leaky bladder! Sometimes we leak because our muscles are too weak, sometimes we leak because our muscles are coordinating incorrectly, and sometimes we leak because our muscles are holding too much tension.
Here are 5 tips from a Pelvic Floor Expert to optimize your pelvic floor muscles:
