Pregnancy and Incontinence, You're Not Alone.

A few months ago, I wrote a post titled Urinary Incontinence After Pregnancy and was surprised at the amount of emails I'd received from various readers and visitors who thanked me for being open to incontinence. That's one of the reasons why I opened up about it, because I'm tired of it being a taboo, along with lots of other health 'issues' of course.

When I come across this infographic from Hartmann Direct who sale incontinence pads, I had to share it, because of course there's a link between pregnancy and incontinence, after all those babies do lean on your bladder! Whilst this wasn't news to my ears, I was surprised to find that a staggering 62% of those surveyed had incontinence during their pregnancy, and 50% carried on having problems after childbirth. 

Thanks to this infographic from Hartmann Direct, I've also discovered what food and drinks to avoid, and now plan to stop the can or two of fizzy I consume every day!

Take a look at the results yourself by reading the infographic below.
