Weak bladder... LBL... Leaking...

Urinary and bowel incontinence caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles moonlight as a few different names.

It's a common problem (1 in 3 mothers will experience urinary incontinence), but it is certainly NOT NORMAL!

It's NOT just an inevitable part of becoming a mother.

It's NOT just something that you have to put up with.

With the right advice, your pelvic floor muscles (just like any other muscle in your body) can be trained and strengthened.

But just WHAT are your pelvic floor muscles? Where are they and what do they do?

I think I'll let Shira Kramer, Women's Health Physiotherapist, explain this one to you. Sit back with a cuppa and watch this five minute clip thanks to the Continence Foundation of Australia.

But if you've got a bit of extra time, and you feel like a giggle,  watch the incredible funny Elaine Miller! No, seriously, watch her. Then tell ALL your friends about her. Ladies, we are in this together. Knowledge is power. And the more we share, the more we know.
