I have my own experience of this sort of problem. Many years ago a close friend used to suffer if she had alcohol and then found herself laughing, she would very often be seen running to the toilet as she failed to hold her bladder and ‘leaked’. When I had Joe, I had a caesarian section, and didn’t feel I really needed to try those pelvic exercises, after all, Joe hadn’t come out that way. I was wrong, and now find that if I need to pee, I need to go straight away, no waiting around or trying to hold it like I did pre-Joe.
I think the film from Tena is great as it shows young, glamorous women talking and laughing about their experiences with weak bladder issues, belying the idea that it is just old ladies who have this problem. Not all the women in the film are mother’s – one girl just has a very small bladder, and they show clearly why this is a problem which should never blight your life or stop you doing anything you wish. Lights by Tena are small enough to keep in your bag, and so are perfect for unexpected leaks – those ‘oops’ moments as they are perfectly described in the film.
