If there’s one issue which unites many women and yet is rarely discussed, it’s the details that happen after giving birth. And I’m here to raise my hand and to share that you are not alone and that it’s completely normal.

Look, while we want to admit it, giving birth is messy, not just during, but after. And the after, I mean coping with leakage. Yep, the majority of women who give birth usually end up with a sensitive bladder. And coping with the occasional leaks and the embarrassment that comes along with them, is not something we discuss, particularly amongst Black and Latino women.

According to BlackDoctor.org, 1-in-2 African-American women have some level of bladder leakage. That’s pretty shocking. And that’s not something anyone had prepared me for after giving birth. But, while the childbirth process can be a messy mess, it’s comforting to know that topics we don’t speak of are usually manageable and treatable. So that is why Always Discreet wants to educate African American women that bladder leaks are a normal part of life. It’s not something to be embarrassed by or a topic to avoid.

The Always brand has feminine, discreet bladder leak protection products that can enable women to live their lives to the fullest and without compromise.

Always Discreet products are available in all major supermarkets and pharmacies or online here

I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve had to change my underwear due to accidental leakage during my fitness regime or even laughing with my best girlfriends. I even carry disposable underwear in my purse for these such occasions. Having had the courage to finally share with my mom friends the need to urgently pee and those embarrassing moments of accidental leakage, I realized that I was not alone – and this was my “A-ha!” moment. I felt an immediate connection with my mom friends and didn’t feel that I needed to hide any further and was thankful that I was not alone.

Now that the hot summer weather is here, it’s even more of a challenge to stay dry and fresh, which in turn can have an effect on your choice of wardrobe – and for me, that is where I draw the line!

And this is where the Always brand come in handy…they have a solution. Always Discreet products are the only ones designed with special technology to neutralize odor, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious. They are also easy to dispose of in the waste basket; no fuss, no mess.

Look, bladder leakage is common and it doesn’t have to put a halt on your life. With the right information and products, you can get back to focusing more on you and less on your bladder. I’m so glad we had this conversation!
