A mum's view
Bladder weakness can sometimes result from pregnancy, and its onset is unpredictable. Sometimes it doesn’t happen at all, sometimes only after the second pregnancy, and sometimes years after the birth.
You’ll find plenty of advice when you go to our Pregnancy and New Mums section but we know that hearing the personal experiences of others can be reassuring and helpful too, which is why we’ve collected these stories from mums who’ve experienced bladder weakness during or after pregnancy.
If you would like to have your story featured on this part of the website, please contact us.
