We all know the dreadful feeling of needing the bathroom suddenly to empty the bladder while having coffee with friends or while out shopping and how humiliating and embarrassing it is to be caught short and leak urine. Imagine the awful feeling with an over whelming urge to empty your bladder or needing to cough or sneeze and not making it to the bathroom in time and leaking urine. Worse still is the fear of not being able to control stool or gas. New mothers (and some not so new mothers!) up and down the country are dealing with these awful problems.
Help is available to give yourself back your freedom without fear of bladder leaks.
