How to look after your pelvic floor, back, and tummy muscles

41 per cent of women during pregnancy can have some form of stress incontinence (leakage of urine from the bladder when coughing, sneezing, exercising etc).

If you need help identifying your pelvic floor muscles or you are suffering with stress incontinence before or after the birth of your baby we have specialist help available. Please discuss with your midwife and ask to be referred to our physiotherapists.

Remember pelvic floor exercises are for life not just for Christmas!
