Incontinence is one of the final taboos in women's health, and it's about time we spoke up about it.
So, at the next Wellbeing of Women health webinar, author and journalist Luce Brett and Elaine Miller, a physiotherapist specialising in pelvic health, are going to tackle this life-changing problem that affects so many women.
Luce was 30 when she gave birth to her first son and found herself incontinent. She felt scared, upset, embarrassed and ashamed – despite the fact that this is a reality for a staggering 1 in 3 women.
In her heartfelt, raw and funny memoir: "PMSL Or How I Literally Pissed Myself Laughing and Survived the Last Taboo to Tell the Tale", Luce provides a razor-sharp perspective on this widespread medical issue which, despite how common it is, still carries such a stigma.
With the expertise of Elaine Miller, who is a Fellow of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and a founding member of Pelvic Roar, together they will discuss an unspoken, gruelling reality of living with incontinence and why it's simply not good enough for women to be told that, post birth, they should expect their lives and pelvic floor function to be diminished.
"PMSL Or How I Literally Pissed Myself Laughing and Survived the Last Taboo to Tell the Tale" is available as a Kindle, hardback and Audiobook:
