Is “I just pee’d a little” the new badge of honour among women that certifies an honest hearty laughter? Most women think it’s just part of having a baby. Leaking a little after having a baby, while common, is NOT normal. In fact, Urinary Incontinence (leakage of urine) is no laughing matter, and having incontinence during or after pregnancy is a strong predictor that you will experience incontinence again in the next 10-15 years.
The postpartum time is a time of learning how to care for this tiny human you created and dealing with his or her needs; however, it is also a time of great physical and emotional healing for YOU! Often as new moms we put all our needs, wants, dreams, and goals on the back burner and get ready to settle into our “mommy role”, but in reality we need to take care of ourselves first so that we can function at full capacity and be the best mommies we can be!
