Hi, I'm Helen. And this is Why Mums Don't Jump. Busting taboos about leaks and lumps after childbirth. All the stuff that happens to your pelvic floor that no one ever talks about. Incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain. Problems that affect millions of women. One in three. I'm one of them.

I have a prolapse. My pelvic organ was fell out of place after the birth of my second child five years ago. And if you told me then I'd be speaking about this stuff out loud, I would have told you to give your head a wobble.

Obviously, my prolapse is the last thing I ever thought I'd be sharing on a podcast, but I feel so strongly that we need to end the stigma around pelvic floor dysfunction that I'm going for it.

Honestly, I don't think I have ever in my life looked at my own vulva before then. Did not even know that's what it was called.

I'll be meeting up with other women who are trying to navigate lumps and leaks. I'm 36.

"I don't want to wear a pad in case a sneeze or cough. I don't feel ready for that yet."

And I'll be talking to some of the amazing professionals who live and breathe pelvic floors.

"I started to have my own family and suddenly went, oh, everything feels a bit different than it did before. I'm suddenly really interested in how this area works."

Join me, Helen Ledwick, as I try to get a better understanding of what it means to leak wee or poo, or live in pain or with bits that aren't where they're supposed to be. And let's help each other find a way through it. You can get me on Instagram @whymumsdontjump or online at whymumsdontjump.com. And don't forget to subscribe.

Bye for now.
