I know this is something that women do not want to talk about or admit. I’m going to tell you all something. This is something I have trouble with. Since having children it’s hard to stop the leakage. Sometimes I don’t make it to the bathroom on time. It’s quite embarrassing. It happens at the worst times. I was in an airport with my husband and we were waiting to get on a plane and I wet my pants. I wanted to cry. It wasn’t bad but I still wanted to cry.
A Survivor and Pelvic Floor Champion is a woman who has overcome pelvic conditions, like light bladder leakage, through personal effort and has found strength through pelvic fitness and lifestyle changes. She is a woman who inspires others to harness their pelvic power by sharing her story.
