Childbirth: Tampon

To prevent infections, tampons are not recommended for the period immediately after you give birth. It is best to wear postpartum pads. We recommend a product specifically designed for after childbirth: the MaxiMom† pad. This Maxi pad with Comfort Tabs† is specially created for moms who have just given birth. Its asymmetrical design with a larger extremity can be worn both ways depending on your needs.
