How women who have given birth can prevent incontinence

Women who have given birth and are of working age want to know practical ways to prevent incontinence.

Immediately after giving birth, all women should become aware of the factors contributing to incontinence (obesity, weak abdominal muscles, excessive sitting), and begin to prevent them when the pelvic region is still recovering from delivery, preferably immediately and at the latest within one year. After that it will most often be too late.

Of course, the most important thing is pelvic floor exercise, which should be done properly, persistently and according to expert advice.

A variety of aids are available for pelvic floor exercise, which are worth using to make exercise more efficient.

The so-called gynecological deposition (deposition of the inner pelvic organs and the pelvic floor muscles remaining weak) is facilitated by poor sitting, for example during breast-feeding. Poor sitting causes pressure in the abdomen and thereby in the pelvic bowl.

The two-part swinging saddle chair, loose-fitting clothes for sitting (also while breast-feeding), prevents internal pressure effectively and has been shown to activate the pelvic floor muscles. In this solution, it is most advantageous to place the baby on a small padded table at the correct height.

There are saddle chairs for which such a height-adjustable small table is available as an accessory and can be conveniently attached to the chair.
