Beat Post Pregnancy Sternutophia with an Always Prize Pack

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Always Discreet. I was sent the items mentioned below to facilitate this post.

If you are a Mom, especially if you are a Mom a couple times over, odds are you developed Post Pregnancy Sternutaphobia. Picture this moment with me: You have finally started to regain some form of your old pre-baby body, you've showered, dressed, applied the perfect amount of make-up, you have started to feel somewhat normal again. You are just getting ready to head out the door and welcome a beautiful world where you get to interact with adults...and then you feel it coming are about to sneeze. Trying as hard as you might to clench your legs as tightly together as you can, there's no turning back now, the sneeze is coming whether you want it to or not. Just as as you feel the sneeze leave your nostrils, your worst fears are confirmed. The sneeze wasn't the only thing to escape - yep, you just peed in your pants a little. You quietly and calmly, feeling quite frustrated and secretly disgusted with yourself, but thankful the sneeze did not overtake you in public, take the walk of shame back to your room to make everything right in the world again.

 As a culture we are famous for talking about the beauty of pregnancy. See, Here's a picture of me (I'm the short one on the right) and my sister when we were pregnant - aren't we beautiful?

But as soon as that new bundle of joy is born, our bodies go through months of not so beautiful changes, changes that most people don't really like to talk about. One of those specific problems is bladder incontinence. For months, that human being you have been growing inside of you has been using your bladder as his or her punching bag while they are awake, and as their comfy body pillow to rest their head on while they sleep. It's only natural, that as your body tries its hardest to shrink everything back into place, you will discover a few casualties along the way (did my bellybutton always look like that?). One of those parts of your body that takes the hardest hit is your bladder.

 According to the folks at Proctor & Gamble, Bladder leaks are an issue that many people don’t like to discuss.  However adult incontinence, especially after pregnancy, is a common issue many women face at one point or another for a variety of different reasons. Pregnancy and childbirth, age and medical conditions can all contribute to a sensitive bladder.  In fact, bladder weakness affects 1 in 3 women over the age of 18!

When you are struggling to overcome the mountain of body changes that come after having a baby, the last thing you want to worry about is sneezing (or laughing, or yawning, or walking) and dealing with the issue of bladder control. I have used the wonderful products of Always for lots of feminine needs over the years (don't worry, I'm not diving into THOSE issues in this post) and now P&G and CVS are teaming up to help women live with confidence again by using Always Discreet – the newest product line that offers a full range of urinary incontinence products for women who suffer from a sensitive bladder.

 Whether you’re relaxing at home or out on the town, the last thing you want to think about are bladder leaks. That’s why Always Discreet designed innovative incontinence products to be the perfect combination of form, function, and femininity. Specifically designed to meet women’s bladder control needs from those small little leaks up through heavier urine losses, Always Discreet products help make living with a sensitive bladder feel like no big deal. Always Discreet Product Information: Always Discreet offers a full range of urinary incontinence products for women who may suffer from over active bladder symptoms as a result of stress incontinence, urge incontinence, or both.  Always Discreet’s incontinence liners, incontinence pads and incontinence underwear can assist with bothersome bladder leaks in women.
