Get ready for your hospital stay and make sure you’ll be as comfortable as possible. Postpartum pads are specially designed to keep new mothers comfy and dry in the 6 weeks after giving birth. They’re made of soft unwoven fabric which is highly absorbent and quickly wicks away moisture while being gentle on your sensitive skin.
Postpartum bleeding is a process that cleanses your body. It’s usually stronger during the first days after giving birth, and then slowly decreases and stops within the subsequent 6 weeks. Maternity pads are about 1cm thick and don’t have a plastic waterproof layer like standard sanitary pads, so they don’t prevent quick regeneration after labour.
Your hospital kit should include at least 40 postpartum sanitary pads. In the case of strong bleeding you might use 20 or 30 pads a day, so make sure to have enough – you can always use the rest in the 6 weeks after. Maternity pads with wings are best used after the strongest bleeding has subsided.
Our tip: You can keep the postpartum pad in place with postpartum knickers which don’t compress your belly and instead adapt to your body.
