Hi Dr. Will it go away on its own?

Very often, it does not go away on its own, as we need to work the pelvic floor muscles to get them back in shape. For mummies with incontinence, I usually tell them – it is too late once they come to see me. We should be strengthening our pelvic floor before pregnancy to prevent incontinence from happening in the first place.
