Best underwear after delivery
I actually didn’t know about all the bleeding that takes place after giving birth. No one really told me about that. I just thought you pushed out the baby and the afterbirth and that was that. I didn’t reflect on it being attached to the wall of the uterus . Or that it would leave a big wound in the uterus when it came off. Did you know that it is normal to bleed between 4 to 6 weeks after giving birth?
It’s recommended not to use tampons or menstrual cups because you have a wound that can get infected. It’s not like being on your period. At least not at first. You’re bleeding quite a lot. Most hospitals will provide you with disposable panties during your stay but when you leave, you’re on your own (it’s a worldwide tradition to steal a few).
This is when the need for postpartum underwear kicks in. Like me, you might have “period panties” that you’re not particularly careful with. The wear and tears. But you’ll probably won’t be very comfortable in these as you need to put a giant medical pad (best sanitary pads after delivery) in them. The best underwear after delivery have a little different design than normal underwear. A little bigger and a little wider to make room for everything. And if you have gone through a c section, you’ll need something else entirely.
