Just five weeks ago I welcomed my fourth child into this world and I could not be more in love with this sweet little girl! I look at my four children and I am just so amazed that my body was able to grow these little humans and bring them into the world. I am also incredibly thankful to have had overall easy labor and deliveries, and that I was able to have four natural births… especially with my third being a nine pound baby! My body has done incredible things, but it certainly did not pop back in place to where it was before ever becoming pregnant. These past several months I have been apart of October pregnancy groups and I have noticed that the majority of them women complain about the same thing during postpartum recovery… how do I get back into shape down there!!??

Whether you are a first time mom or a seasoned one, we all at one time or another found laughter during those months of pregnancy when a simple sneeze, giggle or cough left you peeing your pants. While this was something to expect while a baby spends its days sitting on or kicking your bladder… its definitely not something many woman expect to experience after baby is born. The truth is tho… about 1 in 3 women suffer from urinary stress incontinence at some point in their lives and strengthening your pelvic floor muscles is almost always the first step.

Right after I had my baby and was still in the hospital, the nurses and midwife gave the same advice on how to make sure I start doing my kegel exercises right away to ensure I strengthen my pelvic floor muscles. Seems like a simple task that one would have plenty of time to do. Unfortunately I am still struggling to adjust as a mom of four and figuring out a routine with a brand new baby… remembering to do my kegels has been pretty far down on the list. I think the hardest part of remembering to do them is that it’s not something there physically in front of me saying I have to do it. Thankfully I found a way to keep up on my daily routine of pelvic floor strengthening and am so thrilled to share my solution with you!

Don't Let Urinary Stress Incontinence Control Your Life

I recently started using the ELITONE® to help me with stress urinary incontinence and am so pleased to have finally found something that fits with my lifestyle. This is the first available medical device that provides non-invasive treatment for SUI in women. ELITONE is the very first product of its kind and was launched under a newly created FDA product category for non-invasive incontinence therapy. Do you find yourself losing control of your bladder during such activities as exercising, coughing, laughing or sneezing? These particular activities increase the internal pressure placed on the abdominal cavity and pelvic floor muscles and this results in incontinence. If this sounds like something you expereience, then the ELITONE is soemthing you should consider! 

What I really love about ELITONE is that is non-invasive and something that I can discretely wear  under my clothing and against my skin like an absorbent pad. The device works by applying gentle stimulation to exercise the pelvic floor muscles, ultimately reducing leakage and improving incontinence. The therapy is rendered through externally applied disposable gel pads, which are both easy to use and comfortable to wear. And most importantly… the treatment sessions last only 20 minutes and can be done while I nurse the baby, load the dishwasher, help kids with homework… all of those household chores that keep me busy! This device is truly a life saver and helping me to feel more confident in my postpartum recovery. 

If there is something I have learned from being apart of a group of hundreds of woman that just had babies in October and that are experiencing SUI… is that it is not something to be embarased about and that many women experience it! Don’t let SUI control your life and don’t be afraid to find a way to gain control of your bladder again so you can start enjoying those physical activities again.
