INCONTINENCE

There are many different types of incontinence and it affects everyone in different ways. While it is extremely common, it does not have to be endured. Figures suggest 1 in 3 women suffer from incontinence at one point in their lives, however, this number is thought to be closer to 1 in 2 given the number of women who do not seek help.

But you do not have to suffer in silence.

  • Unable to pick up your baby without leaking a little or a lot of urine?
  • Can’t run without using a pad and find yourself relying more and more on pads every day?
  • Told it is normal to leak because you have just had a baby?
  • Needing to go to the toilet frequently throughout the day and find it difficult to hold on?
