Thank you for all your support! Have you ever had one of those crazy weeks when there was just way, way too much to do and still only 24 hours in every day?! That was my week last week that it l...
Home workouts during lockdown. Millions of women suddenly suffering with bladder leaks! Women taking up exercise, running and HIT classes and had no idea the pressure they were putting on their pelvic floors! Secret Whispers Kegel Kit is the solution to strengthen your pelvic floor. Simply a dumbbell for your pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor trauma described as an injury
I heard Rachel talking on the radio about her issues and sent her a Secret Whispers® Kegel Weight Kit and around the same time she had been introduced to Emma James, the physio I mentioned in an earlier blog. Between my Kegel Kit and the other options, Emma suggested, Rachel is now on a journey of recovery. She has accepted that her pelvic floor weakness is down to an injury - this is a major psychological step forward. If your ankle is broken you put a cast on it - you have to accept if your pelvic floor is not working as it should you need to take action to fix it.
It’s key to be aware that just because you don’t have an issue yet, doesn’t mean you have a strong pelvic floor - it’s a muscle like any other - if you don’t use it, it’ll become weak. The Secret Whispers® Kegel Weight Kit is like a weighted tampon. Once inserted into your vagina, gravity does its bit and the correct pelvic floor muscles engage to keep it in - think about it as a dumbbell for your pelvic floor. And talking of tampons, Jo recalled the first time she saw a tampon and remembered her thoughts were “What?? It goes where??” and she was having the same thoughts seeing my pelvic floor toner! I’d love to know your first thoughts on seeing it?
What drives me in this quest is that there’s so much awareness that needs raising but I have to tell you, when I hear from a woman, who’s used my product, telling me “I’m pad-free, Julie!” I do a little dance!
On this journey to campaign for pelvic floor awareness I’ve met some amazing health professionals. One of them being Emma James who is a physiotherapist specialising in the pelvic floor area.
Emma James physiotherapy for the pelvic floor
We initially met online and I then visited one of her practices back in February and had the opportunity to present to the rest of her team. Since then we’ve given mutual support and I’m proud to say that Emma recommends Secret Whispers® Kegel Weights to her clients, and last week our diaries finally coincided for a collaborative facebook live.
We had such an interesting conversation and hearing Emma say “Just because it (urinary incontinence) is common doesn’t mean it’s normal” is something you hear me talk about A LOT.
