Helen is joined by Sara Duckett, a listener and a mum-of-two. Sara has struggled with urinary and bowel incontinence, as well as prolapse, since the birth of her first child in 2016, but says a non-surgical treatment (PTNS) has been life changing . They discuss the mental health impact of pelvic floor problems, the stigma that surrounds them and the importance of never giving up .  
You are worthwhile. And if you're not fully fighting-fit and able to live your life then you can't be there for your children, you can't be there for your partner, you can't be there for your friends. You don't deserve to lose yourself to this. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You just have to keep pushing for it and don't give up!
