In this episode, we will cover:

  • what "Transitional Incontinence" is and how long the "window to recovery" from it is
  • what other common complaints/symptoms associated with persistent pelvic floor issues women suffer with (other than just leaking after jumping, coughing or sneezing) that women might not think are related
  • what 3 things you can do now to prevent incontinence problems after the birth of your baby
  • what pelvic floor PT methods have shown a 60-91% success rate with incontinence regardless of the amount of time that has passed after your last birth

About Laura Vidal Borrell:

I am a Mom, Technologist, and Entrepreneur. I am the founder of HappySneeze, a team dedicated to creating digital solutions that radically increase access to quality pelvic and incontinence care for women.

After having my two boys, I spent 6 years peeing my pants every time I sneezed, yelled (I do that more than I like to admit), or tripped (I am pretty good at that too). Working in technology, I was shocked that we could create self-driving cars and not have a friendly way for moms to recover postpartum.

So I quit my nicely paid corporate job and put my product development experience to work to create HappySneeze. We team up with the birth community to raise awareness, educate, and empower moms to recover after birth with simple movement that fits into everyday tasks.

When not cracking the code of the happy sneeze you will find me cooking, purging my kids’ drawers, or both. I live between San Diego, CA, and Barcelona.
