What They Don't Tell You About Having A Baby!
Pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum are not easy, but having a baby is an incredible gift! Unfortunately, the postpartum impact of having a baby is often left unspoken.
Common postpartum symptoms include;
  • Engorged breasts, leaking breasts and sore nipples 

  • Hemorrhoids, sore perineum and constipation

  • Body aches, fatigue and night sweats

  • "Baby blues" for up to 14 days caused by hormonal changes

  • Abdominal cramps for 7 to 10 days post delivery

  • Bleeding for 6 to 8 weeks post delivery (lochia)

  • Your bladder control may never be the same...

Postpartum recovery takes time, so go easy on yourself. If you're concerned about any of your symptoms, take the time to chat to your doctor - they've seen it all before and they're here to help you.


One in three women who have had a baby will experience some form of incontinence when she laughs, sneezes, coughs or exercises. During pregnancy, as you produce hormones, your pelvic floor muscles become weak and struggle to support your internal organs. This can lead to difficulty controlling your bladder. You are most likely to develop postpartum incontinence if:

  • You had bladder problems during or prior to pregnancy

  • You are having your first baby, or a large baby

  • You have a long labor or you have a difficult delivery (stitches, tearing etc.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use period pads and liners for postpartum incontinence?

Using menstrual products for bladder leakage wouldn’t be as effective as they are designed for blood which is thicker than urine with slower discharge times and volumes, and therefore lower absorbency levels. They’ll leave your skin feeling damp and uncomfortable, and at a higher risk of irritation and infection. Menstrual products don’t protect your skin against urine and won’t neutralize the urine odor.

Can I use incontinence pads and liners for my period?

Although not recommended, it is possible to use an incontinence pad or liner in place of a period pad when menstruating. However, it is important to remember that incontinence and menstrual products work very differently. Period pads are specially designed to absorb menstrual flow which is slower and thicker than urine. These products absorb in line with your flow and safely work to be changed every four to eight hours. If using an incontinence product for your monthly cycle, you’ll find that blood doesn’t absorb into the incontinence pad as well as urine does, as it’s designed to absorb heavy amounts of thin liquid quickly.

Can I use tampons after giving birth?

Doctors advise not to use tampons until you've had your 6-8 week postnatal check, the lochia has stopped and your wounds have completely healed. Using tampons or menstrual cups before you've healed can increase your chances of getting an infection. When your doctor is comfortable for you to return to using tampons, you may need to use a different absorbency or sized tampon for the first few months. 

Are Incontinence products HSA and FSA Eligible?

Incontinence supplies are typically eligible for reimbursement with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), or a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA). Contact your employer or FSA/HSA/HRA provider with account or eligibility questions.

Does Medicaid Cover Incontinence Products?

Medicaid is a state and federal program that provides medically necessary products (including incontinence products), healthcare or long-term care services to those who qualify.

Visit Healthcare.gov and use its Medicaid calculator to determine if you qualify.

For an incontinence product to be covered by Medicaid, it must be considered “medically necessary”, and therefore essential to the treatment or management of a particular condition. This can be determined by visiting your doctor and getting a diagnosis.
