Hi, these are a few questions that are been asked by new moms to be, and I am sure these FAQs are going to be very helpful for new pregnancy ladies. If you have noticed that I always say every pregnancy body is different and so, as post-pregnancy bleeding and periods. Every person has a different body, different cycle, and a different flow. So, make sure to understand your flow to use the right pads at the right time.

  1. When Should I Start Using Postpartum Pads?

New moms-to-be will experience heavy bleeding immediately right after delivery. So, immediately nurse will provide you one or two pads for use. Later on, you will have to use your own pads. The heavy bleeding will continue for more than 10 days. So, Maternity pads are must have pads for every new mom after childbirth.

  1. How to Use Postpartum NewMom Pads?

It’s the same as the period’s pad that you have been used in the past but this pad helps to control heavy flow. You can use this pad with a Pad fixator or old panties that you can use and throw.

You don’t have to worry about who will wash your dirty panties during post-pregnancy. It a must-have in hospital bag products. Once your flow is normal you can shift to normal panties and pads.

One pad can be used for 3 to 4 hours.  And make sure to change the pad every 3-4 hours. The only issue with this Maternity Pads is that the glue of the strip of the pad at the back is not that strong, the pad doesn’t stick to its place, and the pad may end up getting folded from both sides which may cause discomfort.  So, use the double-tap as shown in the picture and in the video for a secure fit.
