Incontinence in and after pregnancy is one of the most common causes of temporary bladder weakness in young women. There are a number of causes of incontinence during and after pregnancy, but just the stress and pressure of your uterus on your bladder can make bladder control difficult when you’re baby is growing.
At Cairn Lifestyle we know how inconvenient and annoying it can be to have one more thing to worry about, especially at this very exciting (and busy) time! Although it may feel like you have everything to remember, especially if you are a first time mum, we are here to offer you the help and advice to make those small changes to improve your bladder control.
Not only are we here to offer our expert advice on how to improve your incontinence in and after pregnancy, but we are also here to provide products – should you need them, that you can rely on and trust to allow you to continue your everyday life. Simple exercises, nutrition and small habit changes can help to ensure that your bladder weakness improves and remains temporary. An overactive bladder caused by hormone changes can also contribute to the problem but this is usually the case during pregnancy and these symptoms should subside after you have given birth.
Sometimes it can feel like incontinence after the birth of your child can add another unwanted thing to your plate. It’s important to remember that you are not alone, in fact it affects around a third of new mums in their first year. Using products that you can rely on and have confidence in makes all the difference as your tissue and muscles that support your uterus, bowel and bladder heal.
