Many mothers of newborn children find themselves dealing with bladder leaks. Many are completely unaware that the pelvic floor muscles play the main role in leaking pee when you do an activity.

Celebrity mothers like Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian have publicly spoken about wearing diapers post-delivery. Both stated that they had no idea that mothers had to wear diapers, or pads, for weeks after giving birth.
