Pregnancy & urine leakage

What to expect when expecting

Carrying a baby puts a lot of pressure on the bladder, so it’s common to have leakage during pregnancy. It’s also very common to experience urine leakage (also known as incontinence) throughout your pregnancy and after giving birth. 

In fact, research shows that one in three women over the age of 35 will experience urine leakage, including little leaks*. Your body is going through a lot of changes, which have a huge impact on your pelvic floor and bladder.

Here, you’ll find all the information you need to prevent leaks and manage any symptoms that you may be experiencing.
