Discreet & Absorbent Maternity Pads: 2+ weeks post-birth
Our discreet Maternity Pads have been developed to be used from week 2 post-partum, when your post-birth bleeding starts to reduce and you start to become more active.
Crafted from soft, breathable and dermatologically tested materials with no compromise on absorption levels – our slim Maternity Pads have been designed specifically for post-partum bleeding (also known as lochia) which requires a different level of protection than standard sanitary or bladder control pads.

Extra Absorbent Maternity Pads
Our super-absorbent Maternity Pads have been designed specifically for Lochia – the name for post-birth bleeding which requires a different level of protection than standard sanitary or bladder control pads.
All women experience bleeding after childbirth (whether they have a c-section or vaginal or birth) – this is called Lochia. There are 3 stages of lochia – typically lasting up to 6 weeks with mums needs changing as they progress through these stages.
Maternity Pads are designed specifically for use after giving birth. For most women, post-birth bleeding is heavier than a typical menstrual period, most definitely in the first 2 weeks which requires a degree of protection not offered by normal sanitary or bladder leakage pads.
Most new parents will bleed for around 6 weeks after giving birth, so Maternity Pads with wings for extra protection are recommended throughout this period. Maternity Pads will require changing as needed, or every 4 hours, so it’s likely you’ll need around 250 maternity pads over this period.
If you’re thinking about how many maternity pads for your hospital bag, we recommend taking 2 packs of our thick maternity pads (Extra Absorbent) for use straight after giving birth – these should last you just over 3 days so you’ll be covered in case you need to stay in a little longer.
