Many of my health coaching clients come to me because they want to lose the weight they gained during pregnancy and get back into pre-baby shape. I work with them on healthier eating and lifestyle changes—including getting into an exercise routine. One of the reasons my clients tell me they are avoiding exercise: they leak urine when they try to work out. Many of my friends, too, struggle with leaks during activity.

This is quite common in women after childbirth. Normally, our nerves, ligaments, and pelvic floor muscles support our bladders, keeping the urethra closed so that urine doesn't leak out. However, if these areas are overstretched during pregnancy or childbirth, they can stop working properly. It's called Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and can cause sudden, light bladder leaks when we laugh, cough, exercise, or lift heavy things. 

Having kids is life-changing in so many ways. But leaking urine doesn't have to be one of them. Moms should be able to exercise and stay fit with confidence. That's where Poise Impressa Bladder Supports can help.  

Perfectly discreet for the locker room.

Impressa Bladder Supports are designed to address this problem that so many of us moms face. The bladder supports are a non-absorbent, removable product that helps stop bladder leaks before they happen. Just insert one into your vagina (like a tampon) and it gently supports the urethra to help prevent urine from leaking.

Because they are inserted like a tampon, the bladder supports are totally discreet. You can wear form-fitting exercise clothes and no one will know! The unique design means you don't have to remove the support when you go to the bathroom; you can wear the support for up to eight hours within a 24-hour period.

And when you're not worried about leaks, you'll be confident enough to get active! You can jump and dance in step class...


...lift heavy kettlebells...


...and tackle whatever crazy exercise your boot camp teacher throws at you!


Of course, one of the best ways to get in shape after having kids is to run around and play with them! And with Impressa Bladder Supports, you can relax and just have fun—instead of worrying about leaks.
  

Impressa Bladder Supports are available over the counter. I bought mine at CVS using this $1-off printable coupon (available while supplies last). The supports are also available on the CVS website. 


I started by buying a Poise Impressa Bladder Support sizing kit. The right size for you is not about how much you leak or how much you weigh—it's about your best internal fit. Start by trying a size 1 and, if you still leak, try a size 2; repeat until you find the right internal fit for your body. Then you can grab a 10-count pack of the size that best suits your needs.

Now you're ready to hit the gym! Just as I tell my clients (and my friends): prioritize your self-care. Make the time to get strong, get fit, get sweaty, and have fun. That is what #LifeAfterLeaks is all about.


A great gym buddy!
