Helping To Raise Awareness For Continence Week

Disclosure - This giveaway is in collaboration with Pelviva and I have been compensated for my time.

When I found out I was pregnant with big J almost 18 years ago now, I remember reading every baby and parenting book I could find. I wanted to know everything about pregnancy, labour and giving birth. Those books helped me so much with what to expect and how to deal with almost every scenario. There were some things that I skipped past and one of them was pelvic floor exercises. If I knew then what I know now I would have done all my pelvic floor exercises because now I know how important they are and how much I suffer because I didn't do them.

During pregnancy, childbirth or the menopause your pelvic floor muscle becomes weak. The weaker it becomes it may not be strong enough to prevent your bladder from leaking and that's why some people suffer from bladder leakage. 1 in 3 women actually experience bladder leaks and this can happen when they cough, sneeze, exercise or urgently need the toilet.

If you suffer from bladder leakage you will know what a massive impact it can have on your daily life. It isn't nice when you need to cough or sneeze and you have to cross your legs tightly or hold yourself which I know I have done myself plenty of times and seen women do it to.

Not being able to go running or play on the trampoline with the boys has been something I have missed out on due to not doing my pelvic floor exercises however Pelviva - an award winning muscle re-trainer has been designed with this in mind. Pelviva exercises your pelvic floor muscle for you. It uses a unique technology which works naturally with your body, making your pelvic floor muscles contract and reconnecting your brain to your pelvic floor.

The Pelviva treatment has been clinically proven to improve bladder leaks in 84% of women in just 12 weeks.

Pelviva is a discreet, disposable, single use intra-vaginal medical device. Made with a soft body responsive foam, adjusting to differences in female anatomy and movement during use. Treatment is over a 12-week period, with 30 minutes usage every other day.

This week is continence week (17-23rd June) to help raise awareness of continence issue across the globe that can have a huge effect on peoples lives. I know that this can be embarrassing to talk about even amongst friends but like I said earlier 1 in 3 people suffer so you are not alone.

To help raise awareness I have teamed up with Pelviva to offer one reader the chance to win 1 months supply of Pelviva worth £199.95. All you need to do is complete the entry form below and come back daily for bonus entries.

  1. This happens to so many women. What a great gadget that sounds like it can really help.

  2. I had no idea what a problem this could be. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My mum has had 4 kids and has always instilled in me the importance of doing pelvic floor exercises!
    I'd love to win this because I'm curious what the Pelviva is like. It sounds interesting!

  4. I think incontinence is something we all need to talk about more. It is such a taboo but there is so much that can cause it, it is great there are ways to help it too.

  5. This sounds really good, your pelvic floor certainly suffers with pregnancy, especially a twin one! Mich x

  6. We never realised the importance of doing pelvic floor exercises until it was too late! This looks like a great gadget to help x

  7. A friend of mine told me the reason she didn't do the mum's race at sports day was that she would wet herself. Pelvic floor is really important this sounds so helpful

  8. I think we all take our pelvic floor for granted, I wish I had done my exercises properly. I can completely sympathise with the trampoline thing!

  9. my pelvic floor isn't what it used to be after having 3 kids. When I get a bad cough I have to sit on a towel LOL

  10. Confidence boost - will really change how I feel

  11. Thanks for sharing this, I don't yet have kids and have this problem already.

  12. This would be amazing for my wife, after our 2nd baby

  13. Like you, I found that there was little information on pelvic floor muscles and the importance of completing exercises whilst pregnant and after birth

  14. After 5 kids I am sooooo digging this (unfortunately)

  15. This is soo important and a good reminder to us

  16. Thanks for the giveaway, this sounds like a useful gadget for more effective pelvic floor exercising
