Incontinence: A chat about Oops moments
Incontinence is a very common problem but isn't something that is talked about enough.
It's a tabboo subject and as a Mum I feel it's important to talk about since pregnancy is one of the main reasons for incontinence. I feel it's important as women can feel uncomfortable talking about it but it's important to know that they aren't the only ones that have this issue and it just happens.
Pregnancy can have an affect on your pelvic floor, after all you have the baby, amniotic fluid, placenta, etc resting on your pelvic floor muscles with great pressure which causes them to become weaker too. Stress incontinence happens and it's nothing to be embarrassed about.
Basically it means that your pelvic muscles have been weakened so it's more harder to control your bladder, causing leakages.You may leak wee when you cough, sneeze, laugh or move quickly.
To help you combat the leakages, Hartmann Direct offer a huge range of products, from pads and briefs to moist tissues and washes for when a leakage occurs. Obviously in the long term it's better to make sure you do your pelvic floor exercises even though they are a pain to have to do.
I was sent a few MoliMed comfort pads and have found them to be comfortable and discrete to use which is great in case I have an Oops moment. They are ideal if you have slight bladder weakness with 3 levels of absorbency mini, midi, maxi.
