Q: “How many maternity pads will I need?”
New mothers will experience postpartum bleeding anywhere from a few days to few weeks. As a minimum, we recommend having two packs of postpartum pads in the house and one pack in your maternity bag. You may need to change your pad every hour or two to start with, then every 3 or 4 hours in the coming days and weeks.
Q: “Why use wood pulp inside of the pads instead of cotton?”
We use ecologically certified wood pulp as the absorbent core of our pads. This is because the fibre structure is well suited for pads. Pulp from pine wood is 70% amorphous and 30% crystalline, meaning it can absorb much more than a pad which is just cotton.
We use organic cotton for the top sheet of our pads, and this sits next to the skin, acting as a soft natural cover to wick away blood. Our fluff pulp is sustainably sourced from fast growing, Scandinavian pine trees. We mechanically process the wood to make it soft, fluffy and absorbent – we never use chemically processed pulp, such as rayon.
