Hygiene products for women in labor differ in many ways. Choosing the best option, you need to pay attention:

1. The naturalness of the material. On the package, there is information about what the product is made of. It is better to give preference to products that do not contain chemical components (in particular, chlorine). For example, some manufacturers offer bio-cotton models. The lining itself is made of a double layer of cellulose, and its filler is made of the fluff of wood pulp and corn starch.

2. Absorbent ability. It is better to purchase postpartum pads with maximum absorption. The packaging should be marked with 4-5 drops. Reliability. A feeling of confidence is given by-products that are firmly fixed to no underwear and have wings or sides that prevent the risk of leakage. Additional features. Some brands add fragrance to their products to eliminate odors. Doctors advise giving preference to postpartum pads without fragrances. The benefits of postpartum pads

Postpartum pads made of soft, breathable material and with increased dimensions give the woman a sense of comfort. They are:

Stimulate rapid healing in the presence of microcracks and tears in the intimate zone. Various injuries are not uncommon in natural births. Products from materials of natural origin are safe, hypoallergenic, has wound healing properties;

Normalize the microflora of the vagina. The antiseptic effect of postpartum pads neutralizes the development of pathogenic microflora, providing protection against external irritation and infection in the uterine cavity;

Protect against itching and irritation. Itching and redness of the skin in the intimate area after childbirth are caused by a moist environment that is closed from the air. Gaskets for the postpartum period instantly absorb moisture, thereby providing a calming anti-inflammatory effect;

Prevent the appearance of an unpleasant odor. Special products for women in labor normalize the microbiological and hormonal balance in the body. Active reproduction of pathological bacteria does not occur even with the prolonged wearing of postpartum pads. As a result, an unpleasant odor does not appear.

Postpartum Guidelines

On the first day, the body itself tells you when to replace the gasket. Allocations are quite plentiful, and the replacement has to be done every 2-3 hours. It is important to pay attention in the postpartum period to ensure that the postpartum pads are with the lateral wings and as wide as possible. If you still opted for conventional maxi, then choose products without fragrances and synthetic mesh.

This can provoke tissue swelling, especially if stitches are applied. In addition, the mesh can come off and stick to injured areas, which will bring not only discomfort but also pain.

After visiting the toilet, every time you need to monitor the hygiene of the external genital organs: rinse them, carefully dry them and change the postpartum pads in time. If possible, it is recommended to remove underwear and allow all wounds and sutures to dry.

Prepare at least 3 packs of postpartum pads. You can also buy 2 regulars with a maximum level of absorption. They may be needed if a woman has to stay in the hospital a little longer, for example, if complications arose during the cesarean section.

Postpartum Gasket Instructions

Wash your hands with soap before taking the pad.
* Replace postpartum pads after each use of the toilet.
* Disconnect the panty liner from front to back to prevent germs from entering the genitourinary tract.
* When changing the postpartum napkin, try not to touch the sutures - this prevents injury.

To summarize. In the first month after the birth of the baby, each mother is faced with copious discharge. In order not to feel discomfort and avoid the development of infections, gynecologists recommend wearing disposable postpartum pads. It is better to choose sterile hygiene products from natural materials with increased absorbency, wings, and without flavoring.
