How To Be Sure Of Your Pelvic Floor
Did you know that 32% of women in the UK had experienced symptoms of incontinence in the last 30 days (1)? In London, over a million women could be suffering right now and yet the subject is rarely spoken about, or only in quiet whispers in private places. That is a lot of women who are definitely NOT sure of their pelvic floor. There is so much shame attached to it and not much understanding of the therapy available but there is no need for this to be so widespread. Stress incontinence in not a normal part of menopause or aging and can easily be reversed and it’s not all about the kegels you know!
In this video I talked to women’s health yoga teacher Claire Murphy about how these symptoms arise, especially during menopause and the postnatal periods, and she gave me some great practical tips on how to be sure of your pelvic floor.
