Research in the UK has suggested that 4 out of every 10 post-natal women are feeling embarrassment over talking about urinary incontinence, or "light bladder leakage".
At Conni, we know and understand that some LBL is a normal and natural part of many women's lives, particularly after childbirth.
Childbirth weakens the pelvic floor muscles, affecting the way the bladder functions. Childbirth can also cause damage to the nerves around the bladder making it difficult to control the bladder. However, this is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is very normal and lot more common than you may think.
This most recent study finds that the consequences of not seeking help can lead to
"women feeling lonely and isolated, affect relationships and careers and prevent them exercising or having sex."
