I’m no stranger to talking about things that other people are too nervous (or scared) to talk about. PPD, anxiety, toddler problems, body image issues, hair loss, and, you know… a little light bladder leakage (LBL).
Nope. That hasn’t stopped either.
Recently I took my first yoga class postpartum. And by yoga class, I mean outdoor yoga class with a few hundred other friends. No biggie, right? Wrong.
Not only was I nervous about my first few downdogs, postpartum. But I was also really, really, nervous that those first few downdogs would give me more than I bargained for. You know… a little LBL. Eek!
So I decided to give myself some confidence through incontinence with Poise light absorbency liners.
But seriously. I’m super grateful that I had these on hand to overcome the embarrassment of bladder leakage.
It’s empowering knowing I didn’t have to worry about anything during those vinyasas. It was agonizing enough having to move through those poses for the first time in longer than I’d like to admit! I was able to truly seize the moment and move with my breath!
And in all seriousness, I know it can be difficult, and even embarrassing, for women with LBL to admit they have a urinary incontinence problem, but I hope that hearing my story of how I’ve overcome it will make it a little easier.
