New Mum, New Problem


Bladder weakness can start during pregnancy but for many new mums, it can last a lot longer

A funny joke, a bout of sneezing, a couple of lunges in the gym – all of these everyday activities can be fraught with anxiety for new mums suffering from bladder weakness or stress incontinence.

This is one of the most common forms of incontinence.

It means that you leak urine when pressure is increased on the bladder, like from a cough or laugh. This happens when the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder are weakened; a common effect of childbirth. 

Happily, technology is here to save the day.


The Elvie Pelvic Floor Strenghtener is an award-winning exercise device for your pelvic floor.

Simply place inside and Elvie connects to an app that gives you feedback as it takes you through 5 minute exercises designed to strengthen your pelvic floor.

Elvie can help to prepare the body for pregnancy, speed-up recovery after childbirth and help you regain control of your pelvic muscles.

We are definitely a fan.
