Harry Potter – Helena Bonham Carter Suffered Incontinence

Posted Jul 14 2009 10:11pm

A while back, Ulrika Jonsson revealed she experienced LAI or light adult incontinence after three of her four pregnancies, now another actress revealed she suffered from incontinence shortly after giving birth to her second child.

Helena Bonham Carter, better known as Bellatrix Lestrange from the Harry Potter movies, admitted that she struggled during filming. The 43 year old star said that in every scene she had to scream, she had to put on incontinence pants to prevent leakage.

These were her exact words:

“I was ill-equipped as I’d just had a baby. I wasn’t very fit. You have pelvic floor problems after having a baby and bladder control is minimal. Every time I screamed I wore nappies.”

Helena admits she should have taken more time off after giving birth, but only three months after having the baby she was hauled off to the set to film the latest screen instalment of the JK Rowlings’ novels.

Both cases are perfect examples of incontinence being quite usual and not just an age issue, the most important thing is anyone experiencing any kind of incontinence episodes should seek help and where better to come – Allanda, the site offering incontinence help and advice, F A Q’s and information on incontinence products.
