    Lol! That was me who posted that. I used them whilst in hospital because I was worried about dirty underwear in hospital (I had a 6 night stay). I found the big ones pulled up over my c-sec cut and while ugly they did the trick. They didn't leak, I felt comfortable and I didn't worry about the dirty underwear. When I left hospital I changed to granny undies and heavy duty pads.

    I would use them again for this stay but will also have some cheap underwear with me that I don't feel bad about throwing away.

    I used the Tena disposable undies and it was the best. So comfy, went over the wound of my cs. Worked very well, didn't have to worry about leaking. All the nurses were commenting on what a good idea it was and one was saying she buys them for her teenage DD who has heavy periods.

    With both of mine the midwives gave me those surgical sheet things, with the mesh and then the blue leak proof stuff on the other side and I would stick that under my pj bottoms so any leaks hit that and not the bed sheets. I also wore dark underwear.

    The middie gave me a few of the pads they stock - Molimed Maxi if memory serves. They are huge but I felt really protected IYKWIM. You could proably get them from one of the medical supplies stores that sell to the public.

    I put bluies (the medical sheets that are absorbant one side and blue plastic on back that others are talking about) IN my underwear... Just fold them up between your legs, they are nice and long and super absorbant, get some nice snug granny undies, and viola

    Forgot to say too that I had an emergency c section and so couldn't use them for the first while until I was up and out of bed to put them on. So pack a packet of regular pads too.

    Exactly this.

    I gave birth 8 days ago and highlu recommend using the tena incontinence pads...! They were so easy to just take on and off and throw away without worrying about stains etc. They were excellent with absorbency, and to be honest, I had not one leak!!

    I highly rate them.

    I wore granny undies with the thickest pads I could find and changed as often as I could, hated going to the loo after my c-section so was a bit of an effort. Those hospital maternity pads are the worst!
    I hate leaking, I've always had heavy periods but after I had my emergency c-section under a general I was left in my bed over night absolutely soaking in blood. They didn't give me my undies or pads or even a bluey, yes I had a catheter in but jeez! I bled so heavily that when I stood up for the first time 8 hours after surgery blood poured all over the floor.

    I have massive issues with leaking now and will definitely be more prepared next time.

    I use the bed pads, the ones that they have in hospital to save changing the sheets.
