When mommy pees her pants

Or you can read this and be more informed about something that very likely affects the mother of your children. Why am I writing about something as embarrassing as peeing your pants? Most of these women will never seek care or bring it up with their healthcare provider 3. This story takes place the day after I was discharged home from the hospital with my firstborn. We were having a heck of a time getting the nursing thing down and I was still healing from a vaginal delivery.

I decided to relax and take a shower, but right before I stepped in my son started screaming because he was hungry. So there I was, naked in my bathroom nursing my baby. And then, I sneezed.

And then, I started peeing. All over the floor.

Could not stop it no matter how hard I tried, I literally had no control. Utterly mortified, I stood there in disbelief.

Did I just pee all over my bathroom floor? Before I could fully process what was had happened, my dog ran in and, I kid you not, started playing in the puddle and splattering urine all over my bathroom. So I did what any year-old woman one day postpartum, completely sleep deprived would do.

About the author

Started bawling. At the time I was in PA school and knew what urinary incontinence was, but thought it was something old ladies dealt with.

I can tell you exactly how many times my OB, or primary care provider, or even professors in school told me how this might be something that happens after childbirth… a big fat 0. Now, that was the only time I literally emptied my bladder. But I did have occasional leaking with stress activities like coughing or sneezing, or especially with vigorous exercise. When I asked my OB about it, he said it was pretty normal. Until I had another .

I’m a badass woman who pees her pants sometimes and still gets things done

And another. And although it always got better, I never felt like the problem resolved and seemed to get worse with each pregnancy. After my third child, I decided to be more proactive. I had a new OB and he recommended I see a physical therapist that specialized in pelvic floor therapy. I showed up to the first session.

After further dialog, I was informed it would be that much for each session until I met my out of pocket max.

Real moms talk: did i just pee my pants?

Once again, I recovered slowly, seeing improvement with time but ending up even further from my pre-baby, pre-leaking days. By this time I am a full-fledged PA and am very familiar with pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

Just as you would do bicep curls for toned upper arms or crunches for a six pack, you have to specifically exercise these pelvic floor muscles in order to get them back in shape. My mom friends and I are always joking about not being able to jump on the trampoline or laugh too hard or we might spring a leak. But the truth is, this is something that can be fixed or at least ificantly improved with the right exercises and treatment. You just have to know the right exercises to do and how to do them correctly.

Fortunately, many OBs and physicians are getting better about screening women for these questions and referring them to a physical therapist that specializes in pelvic floor therapy.

Moms pee their pants

Where I live, this has become such a desired service a whole department now exist just for pelvic health. This time, I was going to play the game correctly and get in with PT right after delivery when my out of pocket max would already be met.

By this time 4th times a charm, right? I have learned my lesson and understand the importance of pelvic floor therapy.

Real moms talk: did i just pee my pants?

I researched several options and ended up buying a program online cowritten by a fitness instructor and a Ph. I followed this 4-week program and was amazed at the difference it made. Strengthening my pelvic floor has just become part of my exercise routine. The exercises are not rigorous or difficult or time-consuming. I recommend pelvic floor therapy for anyone who has issues with stress incontinence after childbirth or any other reason.

Customer reviews

I screen women for this issue during their wellness exams because it so often gets overlooked or chalked up as normal. During pregnancy, an extreme amount of focus is put on your health and well-being. You go to the doctor every few weeks leading up to delivery.

Then, your DONE.

You get a quick checkup 6 weeks later and then off you go, see you in a year. But push a baby out, something arguably much more traumatic to the body than surgery, and nothing. This is a very good thing.

I tell my patients to think of it like having no idea how to exercise and walking into a gym by themselves versus going with a personal trainer. Ask to see a pelvic floor therapist. It can be improved like any other musculoskeletal issue.
