The Paul Burgess Functional Medicine podcast

Sep 10, 2020

Luce Brett is a writer and health advocate who lives in the UK. She started writing about women's health, bodies and taboo after the birth of her second baby. Like many women born in an analogue age her sex and body education was a combined effort - she learned about her nether regions from magazines, other peoples' big sisters and Tampax leaflets. This meant she wasn't brilliantly prepared for the realities of childbirth.

Passionate about feminism, healthcare, and smashing the stigma around women's bodies she has spoken about her condition, and also the wider impact of taboo in women's healthcare, and become a respected spokesperson on the issue of incontinence that affects around 1 in 3 women in the UK. Part memoir, part best friend, part stigma smashing call to action PMSL is her first book.

She lives with her husband and kids in the UK, and hopes it will to draw attention to the unspoken, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking reality of continence problems and that it will help other women, and men, everywhere, who are leaky and feel alone, like she did.
