Motherhood changed my life. In 2006, when I gave birth to Adrian, I honestly had no idea what I had gotten myself into. I thought I was ready. I thought it would all come naturally to me. Boy was I wrong! It took me months, maybe even years to feel confident in my role as a mother. Now? Now, I am totally confident to walk around as "Adrian's mom and Amberly & Gian's step-mom" I actually know what I am doing, 99% of the time!!
One of the things that I wasn't told about was the aftermath of childbirth. I had no idea that from that day on I wouldn't be able to sneeze, laugh or cough without having to cross my legs. At first, I thought it would go away, but here we are eight years later and I am a pro-leg crosser! I found out this is called Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI. Most women will suffer from SUI after pregnancy and childbirth. It's definitely hard to feel confident as a mother, even a woman, when you can't sneeze without some body-wriggling. I knew there had to be something out there that would be able to help! I was searching online on CVS.com and found Poise Impressa Bladder Supports.
I ordered the Poise Impressa Bladder supports and they arrived just a few days later. Poise Impressa Bladder supports come in different sizes. You start with Size 1 and insert the bladder support as you would a tampon. If Size 1 does not fit correctly, then you move up to Size 2 or Size 3. The sizing is not about how much you leak or how much you weigh. It's all about the best internal fit for you!
Poise Impressa looks and functions like a tampon BUT it does not absorb leaks, it helps prevent them. They can be worn for up to 8 hours in a 24 hour period. It's a soft, flexible internal device with a non-absorbent outer cover, designed for the temporary management of SUI. I've started using them and believe me it's helped out so much.
This cutie pie made me a mom. Sure, it might have come with stretch marks, weight gain, a little SUI and maybe some gray hairs but I wouldn't change a thing! I'm ready to laugh at all his jokes and cheer him on in the sidelines with confidence!
I now laugh with confidence thanks to Poise Impressa. What about you?
