Your kids keep you on your toes. You like to keep up with them, but lately, you feel like you’re holding back at times. We explain how you can get back the fun, energetic you that doesn’t think twice about a trampoline challenge.

Many women say their kids keep them young. Be it challenging you to a race, playing hide and seek, or building sandcastles, spending time with your children is one of the most rewarding times in your week. But lately, you might feel like you’ve been holding back from some activities for fear. Of bladder leakage.

It can be a very surprising, and embarrassing moment of realisation when it happens, but the truth is, it’s completely normal, common, and often manageable.

High intensity exercise, like trampolining, or other things like sneezing or laughing, impacts your bladder with sudden pressure. If your pelvic floor muscles are weakened, it can result in the release of a small amount of liquid, which is called light bladder leakage (LBL). The loss of strength in these muscles is often due to childbirth, and can be regained with pelvic floor exercises or Pilates.

The other way you can manage while you are working on these exercises is with the right product. Many women rely on feminine hygiene products instead of those designed specifically for LBL, often because they might not realise there’s difference. Poise® have a range of products which are comfortable, discreet, and up to two times more absorbent to help you feel confident in any situation – so you don’t have to say no again.
