Heart-wrenching challenges of a modern mum

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. 

Is pelvic floor conversation still taboo?

Is pelvic floor conversation still taboo?

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.

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.
