Rebecca Adlington: 'I had bladder weakness after giving birth'

This is something Rebecca hopes to help change. “I’m really passionate about encouraging people to be active – particularly women – which is why I’m also an ambassador for Women in Sport,” she says. It’s also why she was “keen” to take part in INNOVO’s recent incontinence awareness campaign, setting a new Guinness World Record for the most people on trampolines (they succeeded, with 343 people simultaneously bouncing for five minutes non-stop).

Rebecca retired from competitive swimming in 2013, but, reflecting on the changes she’s experienced since becoming a mum, says: “Swimming and fitness are a big part of my life. I work out three to four times a week and one of those is a swim.

“I want to live a healthy lifestyle so I am able to do the things I want to do, and be a good role model to my daughter. Swimming is more about time for me than exercise. I love being away from my phone and having an hour for me!”

I'm pregnant with my 2nd child and have had a slight bladder control problem ever since my first was born, nearly two years ago. When it happens, it's not much and occurs only if I sneeze really hard -- or when I had morning sickness early in this 2nd


Yes, I've dealt with it myself. (My daughter is 6 years old now) And Kegal exercises did help quite a lot. I'm pregnant with #2 now (39 weeks), and I have the problem again, but like you, only when I sneeze really hard or when I throw up (had really


I have lived with the same thing since the birth of my son. I wear kotex Light days sometimes(they are super thin not like regular thin linners even, better)

But I think its just because your muscles got stretched so much or something.


Have you discussed this with your doctor? There is a small surgical procedure they can do to tighten the musles around the bladder. Kegals are good though. I did them after my hysterectomy because I refused HRT and had a bladder/leakage problem. Also
