One in every four women
suffers from urinary incontinence.
It is usually not spoken openly about, but one in four women suffer from it at some point in their lives. It decreases the quality of life and causes social and hygienic issues. Urinary incontinence is not only a problem for elderly women but for women of all ages.
Urinary incontinence affects your whole life and also the lives of the people around you. For example, while going out, you have to plan your route in a way that there are as many toilets around as possible. Also you might have leakage during intercourse or at the gym you always leave a wet stain on the bench. Your social life suffers because of it and it can lead to being isolated. Especially among the elderly urinary incontinence may lead to infections and as a consequence even endanger their lives.
Urinary incontinence can be prevented by regularly exercising your pelvic floor muscles. There are also other benefits to having your pelvic floor muscles in good shape, for example, better posture and increased sexual pleasure.
Bailamama together with the Federation of Finnish Midwives, Finnish Association of Physiotherapists in Pelvic Floor and the Finnish Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, want to increase knowledge on urinary incontinence and preventing it.
We all work with women and we want to unveil this taboo and bring forth the importance of exercising pelvic floor muscles in preventing urinary incontinence. It is a huge issue among women. One in every four women suffers from it, but it can be prevented by regular exercise. This is why we invite all women to participate in the Squeeze Tight-campaign!
