Make Pelvic Health a Priority this New Year with Poise Brand
Manage Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) with exercises led by Brooke Burke-Charvet and tips from Dr. Jessica Shepherd
PR Newswire, DALLAS, Jan. 27, 2017
With 1 in 3 women experiencing Light Bladder Leakage (LBL), it’s easy to understand why pelvic health trends are sweeping the nation – from the first-of-its-kind smart kegel device to the rising popularity of pelvic care in health facilities.
Last year, Poise brand introduced Poise Impressa Bladder Supports, a non-absorbent internal product designed to comfortably help stop bladder leaks, pad-free. And this year, Poise brand continues its mission to help women find their Poise Moment – that exact time when they stop letting leaks interrupt their lives and reach for Poise – by focusing on the origin of where LBL starts: the pelvic muscles.

To do so, Poise brand has partnered with two leading experts, celebrity host, actress, and fitness enthusiast, Brooke Burke-Charvet, and women’s health expert, Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OBGYN, to help the millions of women affected by Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) find the best solution for their lifestyle and body.
The duo will be sharing pelvic exercises and tips on how to strengthen the pelvic floor, including:
- Practice Posture: Poor posture can lead to weak abdominal muscles, which in turn weaken your pelvic floor muscles. Next time you find yourself slouching in front of a computer, practice what your mother always told you and sit up straight!
- Squat, but with precaution: Make sure your legs are shoulder width apart and when squatting, watch your form. Make sure your knees don’t go over your toes and that you contract your pelvic muscles during the squat.
- Kegels: Practice every squeeze of the pelvic muscles (for up to 10 seconds), then release and relax for the count of ten. Try to do this at least twice a day.
They’ll also help women find the right products to manage their LBL, like Poise Impressa Bladder Supports, which are available in three sizes that comfortably fit the unique internal shape of each woman’s body. Starting with the Poise Impressa Sizing Kit, women can find their personalized size that most comfortably and most effectively helps stop bladder leaks.
With many still shying away from the conversation, Poise brand is encouraging women to speak up, share their stories and have real conversations about LBL, because talking about it is the first step to finding a better solution.
“I talk to enough women to know I’m not alone – millions of women experience this issue – it’s a part of life! That’s why I’m continuing my work with Poise brand – the leader for light bladder leakage – to help empower and encourage women not to let LBL hold them back,” said Burke-Charvet. “It’s great that there are solutions out there like Poise Impressa Bladder Supports so women can go out and do the things they love – whether it’s a Booty Burn class, or dancing through the chaos of raising a family – without worrying about leaks getting in the way.”
For more than 20 years, Poise brand has been committed to understanding women’s evolving feminine needs and introducing her to innovative, category-changing solutions that empower and give her confidence.
“Our number one priority is to help women with LBL find a comfortable, discreet, and most importantly, effective solution that they can depend on,” says Rusty Zaspel, Senior Brand Manager for Kimberly-Clark Poise brand.
