Janey Loves The Pelvic Toner
A new survey reveals that Helena Bonham Carter is not alone in confessing to weak bladder problems (stress incontinence) after childbirth...If only she knew about The PelvicToner !
You may have read the interview recently with leading actress Helena Bonham Carter where she admitted needing to wear nappies on the set of Harry Potter due to her pelvic floor muscles being so weak after the birth of her second child. Childbirth can have a dramatic and damaging effect on your body, and my recent You and Your Body after childbirth survey revealed that over 50 per cent of new mums have experienced embarrassing leaks !
These embarrassing urine leaks can occur when they laugh, cough, sneeze or exercise. This is called stress incontinence and occurs because the pelvic floor muscles have been stretched and weakened by the birth process. Coughing, sneezing etc put pressure (stress) on the bladder and because the supporting pelvic floor muscles are weakened this leads to unexpected and embarrassing leakage.
The problem may not appear immediately but many mums notice it particularly when they begin rough and tumble games with their toddler. Playing on trampolines or bouncy castles can be especially stressful!
Problems caused by childbirth will not go away unless you take positive action to improve the strength of your pelvic floor. Do nothing and when your muscles begin to naturally lose muscle tone, during and after the menopause, then the problem will get worse. Half of women over the age of 50 suffer from stress incontinence.
Doctors know that in 80% of cases stress incontinence can be cured just by doing effective exercises to strengthen your muscles. The Pelvic Toner has been proven in clinical trials and is available from your GP on prescription. - free of charge if you hold a Maternity Exemption Certificate.
It's a simple and effective exercise device that helps you confidently identify the correct muscles that you need to exercise, it then makes your exercise particularly effective by encouraging you to squeeze against a slight resistance provided by springs inside the device.
Just 5 minutes of exercise 3 or 4 times a week can have a dramatic impact on your quality of life.
Most users report that tighter vaginal muscles have another very beneficial effect and help restore intimate contact and sexual pleasure for both you and your partner especially after childbirth and the menopause.
