25-45% of women have urinary incontinence after having a baby.

Pelvic floor muscles can weaken during pregnancy due to hormonal changes and extra weight, also delivery can cause trauma to the muscles and nerves in the pelvic floor. Post-partum urinary incontinence usually passes within up to three months but can last longer in a lot of cases.

Urine leakage can happen in the most common activities such as laughing, coughing, jumping, or even walking downhill. When this happens, it has a negative effect on the daily life.

Urinary incontinence is treatable. Regular training of pelvic floor muscles can be used to prevent and treat this issue. This should already be done during pregnancy. If the issue persists, we recommend consulting with a gynaecologist or a physical therapist, who helps with planning treatment or giving a training plan.
