From the 19th - 25th September the bladder and bowel foundation will hold its annual National Continence Awareness Week. The aim is to make women much more aware of a very common and distressing health condition and to make them aware that simple and effective treatment is available.
The most common kind of incontinence is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), it reportedly affects over 4,000,000 women in the UK and over 350,000 new mums are at risk every year if they do not do regular and effective pelvic floor exercises following pregnancy. One in ten women in the workplace have to manage the problem of embarrassing leaks with Incontinence Products which could occur at anytime when they cough, sneeze, laugh, move suddenly or exercise.
