What is a Maternity Pad?
Special maternity pads can help absorb the heavier bleeding while still keeping you comfortable and secure while you recover from delivery.
The pads tend to be thicker and more absorbent, holding more fluid than a typical menstrual pad. They also tend to be longer and wider in the back, with wings for added security.

What are the best pads for after birth bleeding South Africa?
Superior comfort and protection
Classique Maternity pads are intended to be used by new mothers in the days after giving birth to absorb any vaginal blood and fluids. Classique Maternity pads are designed to be worn comfortably and discreetly under normal underwear.
How many maternity pads do I need after giving birth?
You will experience about four weeks of bleeding, so you will go through a minimum of a hundred and fifty pads. Do not be alarmed by these numbers; you might experience bleeding that isn’t as heavy or did not last for exactly four weeks.
Are maternity pads better than sanitary pads?
Maternity pads are longer, softer, and much more absorbent. They are also less likely to irritate stitches, as they don’t have the plastic coating that many standard sanitary towels do.
The reason you need so many pads is that bleeding from your womb (uterus) will start soon after your baby is born.
How long do maternity pads last?
Bleeding. Your bleeding will be like a period. It will be heavy and bright and at the beginning and you would be advised to wear maternity pads. These pads should be changed every 2-3 hours.
