Reusable maternity pads and breast pads: your hospital bag must-have

Bloom & Nora reusable maternity pads and breast pads give you superior comfort and protection when you need it most.

You’ve spent months preparing for your new arrival but have you taken the time to plan some TLC for you? Choose beautifully soft reusable maternity pads and breast pads so you can care for baby without unnecessary distractions. 

Reusable maternity pads for post-birth bleeding

Vaginal bleeding, known as lochia, is totally normal after birth, even if you’ve had a C-section. It normally lasts for around 2 to 6 weeks. The blood will gradually turn brown and decrease until it finally stops. Because the bleeding can be quite heavy at first (and it can be redder and heavier when you breastfeed) you’ll need super-absorbent towels. That’s where Bloom & Nora reusable maternity pads come in!

Pamper your perineum

Hospital-issued maternity pads are typically heavy-duty and can feel like a nappy, and conventional shop-bought disposables aren’t much better either — for your comfort or the environment. Did you know that plastic products can take up to 500 years to decompose in landfill?

Bloom & Nora reusable maternity pads are specially designed to be more absorbent, slimmer and softer than plastic disposables. Say goodbye to sweaty chafing from traditional disposables and never fear a rogue sticky wing again. We recommend our Mighty pads for postpartum bleeding.

Bloomers:

  • Made from natural bamboo fibre, perfect next to stitches
  • Up to 40% more absorbent than cotton
  • Holds up to 195 ml

Noras:

  • Stay-dry fabric draws wetness into the core
  • Stain-repellant surface
  • Holds up to 140 ml

All our reusable maternity pads are made with Oeko-Tex 100-certified fabrics, meaning no harmful chemicals anywhere near your fragile nether regions. Both our Bloomer and Nora pads have stay-dry bindings so you can ease into parenthood totally leak-free!

If you love natural fabrics next to your skin, shop Mighty Bloomers. If stay-dry and stay-white pads are more your thing, shop Mighty Noras. We recommend a stash of around 15 to 20 Mighty pads, this allows for 5 changes per day when washing every second day.

Reusable breast pads for milk leaks (coming soon)

It’s nearly time to meet our brand new reusable breast pads, the latest addition to the Bloom & Nora family. Our reusable breast pads stop milk leaks in their tracks and the stay-dry fabric draws wetness away from your skin, locking milk in the absorbent core. These pads are soft, breathable and discreet under all types of clothing.

  • 3 pairs per pack
  • Machine washable
  • Fast drying
  • Reuse for 10 years
  • No noticeable lines
  • Contoured teardrop shape
  • Oeko-Tex certified fabrics
  • An eco-friendly alternative to disposables

Washing and reusing is a doddle

Initially, the idea of washing and reusing pads can seem daunting, but simply store any used pads in our waterproof bathroom bag then chuck the whole lot into the laundry. And with a new baby around, you’ll soon find your levels of embarrassment change. Who else here has sniffed a baby’s bum in public?! Milk leaks, postpartum bleeding and menstrual blood are totally normal, so be proud of your amazing body and all its associated liquids!

And the best part about Bloom & Nora reusable maternity pads and breast pads? You’ll never need to do an emergency dash to the shop again. Just wash them every second day and you’ll have a stash that lasts for up to 10 years. Browse our range of maternity and breast pads today to join the growing number of proud cloth converts.
