Make pelvic floor exercises a daily habit...

                        so you can laugh without leaking

                        We know that for the majority of over six million Australians who suffer debilitating bladder and bowel incontinence, their leakages can be helped or even cured.

                        Over 80% of those who report incontinence are women, particularly those who have ever had a baby. Bladder, bowel and pelvic health problems are incorrectly perceived as a normal part of motherhood or ageing. That is a myth. It is common but NOT normal and over half of those women are under the age of 50 years.

                        Strong pelvic floor muscles are vital for bladder and bowel control as well as good sexual function, but most people never exercise them correctly … and some don’t even know they have them.

                        Our Laugh Without Leaking national awareness campaign uses humour to break down barriers for this serious, stigmatised health condition and urges people of all ages and genders to make a simple change to your life for the better.

                        Make pelvic floor exercises a daily habit. It could be both the prevention and cure for embarrassing leakages that cause millions of Australians to unnecessarily suffer in silence.
