Maternity Brief – Maxi: Will this style absorb postpartum clots? And if not, what happens to them?
If you pass clots during the first few days postpartum (most people do), any blood will be absorbed into the underwear’s built-in lining, while clots will sit on top, just like they do with disposable maternity pads. You can then just tip them into the toilet. Chat to your midwife or medical professional about the ‘normal’ range of clots to expect so that you can let them know if anything out of the ordinary is happening.
