Reusable leak proof underwear for after birth
Why do I need this, you might ask? Well, most of us are so damn focused on the birthing itself, we don’t really think too much about the aftermath. You might be really really sore. And you will definitely bleed a lot. We all do.
When the placenta detaches from the uterine wall it leaves a wound that bleeds for about 4 to 6 weeks. The first 2 days the bleed is quite heavy but after that it normally slows down until the wound is healed.
I suggest you use pads or disposable underwear for the first day or two, but after that I recommend using washable underwear. You can use them as regular period proof underwear after that. I think it’s a great way to save both money and the environment.
You’ll look great and they’re so much more comfortable than disposable products. They’re also much safer. If you want to know more, check out the article “Plus size leak proof underwear for women“.

First time mom or second time around?
Or even third? Are you here searching the web because you had an awful labor gown the first time? Or are you a preventative first-time mom? Please share your experiences and thoughts with the rest of us. What do you think plus size maternity hospital gowns should look like?
Interesting one. The 3 in 1 gown also won it in my rating. Wow, how it almost looked like a Sunday outfit. It’s features also are very cool except the elastic arm holes. I might have to pass on that especially if it very tight as to making me uncomfortable because I really don’t like stuffs being tightly strapped to my body.
Nice to hear you found something you liked. And I do agree on the elastic armholes. It’s probably not too tight though.
I like this topic, there are so many gowns to wear while a woman is waiting for her baby, I liked pants and dresses that I could adjust while the belly was growing. There are many colors to use according with our moods. I tell you the last two months are exasperating but at the end, when you have it in your arms, you are the happiest mom of the world.
Yes, today there’s so many pretty things to choose from. But as you say, nothing compares to the end goal of becoming a mom.
I did not know that there were so many variations and different kinds of gowns available for mothers that are soon to deliver. I think that the gown with matching pillowcase is pretty cool as it endorses good sleep. The panties for mothers who have delivered could be very handy. Which of these gown variations are your favorite?
I think I’m gonna go for the one from Pretty pushers when I’ll deliver in a few months. If this labor is like the first one I’m going to need som humor and encouragement. Thanks for asking.
It would be nice if most of these actually CAME in plus size!
I guess if you’re over a size 22 you’re screwed
Thanks for wasting my time
I’m really sorry to hear that you think I waisted your time. They are all in plus size, maybe not the biggest sizes that exist. But I will give it my best to try to find some stylish options in good quality for sizes over 22 and update.
Hi, have you found any stylish birthing gowns in size 24 yet? It’s been very frustrating as a real plus size 8 month pregnant woman to find one of these that I think will be big enough for me.
Hi. I have found a few options and have now updated with these. Check out the text or follow these links and see if there might be something for you. I really hope you do.
This is an excellent post. I think that you will really help many women feel as good as they possible can during labour.
Many larger woman are very conscious of their bodies and might even be worrying about going into hospital and whether there will be a gown to fit them. By bringing them this post, they know know that they don’t have to worry about it and can spend their time thinking about their baby.
They can now choose a gown that they will feel good in and have it ready before they go to hospital.
I hope so too. =)
