Normalize Motherhood's Messiness

This post is sponsored by Poise® but all opinions are my own.

I recently got the call for my scheduled c-section date (feelings about that could go in a whole other post)! The bright side of it is that we know around what date the baby will be here. Despite feeling "ready", to say I am nervous is an understatement. I have never had three kids so the adjustment will be a new experience, and I am scared to have a third c-section.

I am trying to view all the change positively, though. Thankfully, the baby is doing well and I am feeling pretty well. My weight gain is stagnant and my mood is happy. One of the more recent body changes I am experiencing has been increased bladder leaks. It's nothing I haven't experienced during pregnancy before, though... I am well aware that it's just another part of the joyful messiness of motherhood!
 

Though this can be an uncomfortable topic for women to discuss, I think it's important to raise awareness about what causes bladder leaks (hard kicks from the baby, laughing, sneezing, simply walking around, just being!) I am all for normalizing all parts of womanhood and motherhood - even, and perhaps especially, the messy parts.


For my bladder leaks, I have used Poise throughout my pregnancy and plan to continue during postpartum. They keep you 10X drier than the leading period pad, offering up to 12 hours of protection. Poise pads provide an incredible fit that helps prevent bunching and leaks, and though thin, they are thick enough to actually keep you dry. Poise's trusted 3-in-1 protection provides dryness, comfort and odor control.

 
You can buy Poise pads and liners from your local Walmart in-store or via your online Walmart grocery order.
