Bladder health 101: tips to improve bladder control

Throughout your life, your daily habits and practices can put you in a better position to avoid bladder leakage or loss of bladder control, also known as urinary incontinence. Here, Jean Hailes' own bladder guru, continence and pelvic floor physiotherapist Janetta Webb, explains how to treat your bladder well at every life stage.

Your guide to UTIs

Are UTIs (urinary tract infections) just part of being a woman? Something we have to put up with? By the time they turn 24 years of age, one in three women will have had a UTI, and they affect more than 50% of all women during their lifetime.

Guidelines for using free health articles

If you do need to make any cuts or other edits, we ask that you please email Jo Roberts, Health Content Manager at jo.roberts@jeanhailes.org.au, a final copy before publication. The reason for this is that we carefully review all information and, as you will appreciate, it is easy for information to be taken out of context and meanings changed or compromised.

These guidelines are designed to give organisations clear direction in using agreed-upon information written by Jean Hailes for Women's Health. Jean Hailes makes these women's health articles available to various organisations, including health and community groups, for publication online and in newsletters for non-commercial, nonprofit, educational purposes only.

In line with Australian copyright laws, we require that you acknowledge the articles to Jean Hailes as follows:
