BONUS EPISODE: The Therapeutic Poet - Episode Transcript
Hello. You might have already clocked that today's episode is going to be a lot shorter than normal - tonnes going on at the moment. And for reasons I won't bore you with, I'm afraid I haven't managed to get the planned episode ready for today.
I'm really sorry about that. Life and such and loads of things. But I do, however, have something from a listener coming up which will make you smile.
First thought, a little word about modibody, the go-to brand for any of life's leaks and one of the sponsors of Why Mums Don't Jump. They have a range of products, not just for periods, but for bladder leaks, postpartum bleeding and leaky boobs, as well as reusable nappies for babies, helping to support you through different stages of life. The new Ultra range is the most absorbent, yet it can hold up to 250 millilitres of liquid. No pads, no disposables, just the undies. I've been using modibodi for periods, as you know, for three years now, and I haven't looked back. I also bought a rather nice swimsuit that gave me peace of mind on holiday.
If you fancy trying modibodi, you can use the code WMDJ 15 for 15% off your first order, excluding sale items, bundles, gift cards and Maxi 24 hours. Thank you to modibodi for that.
So last year, I was contacted by a listener, Jackie Power, aka the Therapeutic Poet of the Therapeutic Poet Podcast, and she shared a poem with me that I know will give you a giggle. She kindly let me share it again today.
Do you peepee during PT?
Is your pelvic floor in the basement?
Do you cross your legs each time you sneeze?
Have your lady bits had a displacement?
Are you lamenting your star jumps are numbered, your burpees not perky no more?
Those latchkey moments too close a shave as you try to rush through the front door?
Do you think you're resigned to Pilates?
Boot camper thing of the past?
Is it only the broadband in your house that could now be counted as fast?
Embrace this new phase with gusto - adaption is what we must do,
Who can help us without any fuss, though?
Why! Your gyne physio, that's who!
They won't take the piss, (that's a bad pun).
They'll keep you strong, trim and still fit.
You don't have to suffer in silence,
So do what you must,
But don't quit.
Love it. And if you want more of that, hunt down a copy of Jackie's book, which is Stop the World, I Want To Get Off: Poetry for When You Want to Leave the Planet But Don't Have Billions to Build a Rocket.
I will be back next week. In fact, I have two more spectacular episodes planned for this season, which I know you're going to love, so please do look out for those. Sorry again about today. I will see you next week.
This episode is from Series 3 of Why Mums Don't Jump
