"Where is the closest bathroom?" If you listen hard enough, these are the words you hear from the lips of millions of women as they enter malls, lobbies, museums, libraries-any public gathering place. You are capturing the clarion cry of incontinence, perhaps the single most disruptive functional disorder affecting the quality of life in women. Patient awareness and education are crucial since her participation in curative planning is essential for effectiveness. At last we have the necessary informative vehicle in this ingenuously constructed book created precisely for patient consumption. Dr. Jill M. Rabin is a nationally recognized authority in the specialty of urogynecology and female pelvic medicine. Dr. Rabin is a kind and compassionate expert in the management of this embarrassing and debilitating condition that afflicts millions of women across the nation. Her book is truly a godsend in its potential to help the female beleaguered with incontinence achieve a much improved quality of life. Simply put, goodbye, wet pants. --Dr. Marvin H. Terry Grody, Emeritus Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

Mind Over Bladder by Jill Maura Rabin,M.D. and Gail Stein is very mature and enlightening. If you love your mom, sister, friend, treat her to this gift.
Dr. Rabin addresses the somewhat embarrassing subject of leakage and incontinence with a matter-of-fact approach that gives me confidence that we don't have to suffer in silence. The title alone is enough to let you know you may be able to retrain your body. She tells anecdotes from her many satisfied patients in a way that is highly relatable and lets you know you are not alone. Her review of medical facts and crystal clear explanations make something that seems complex into something completely understandable. I feel empowered and able to take her advice to improve my own continence, and understand what to talk to my doctor about. Thank you, Dr. Rabin!
This book delivered more than I expected. Written in language that made it as easy to follow as a recipe, it was informative, clear, humorous and very useful. The "believe it or not " sections made women aware that they are not alone with their bladder issues. There was a real "down home" feeling to this book which is why it was so approachable .
I recommend this book to all women young and old!
