The postpartum flow is a wound secretion from the placenta site. It serves to clean the wound area on the inner wall of the uterus, which heals after birth. The wound area gets closed and new tissue is formed - the uterine mucosa. Initially, the postpartum flow consists of blood, cervical mucus and bacteria. Normally, it lasts for 4-6 weeks, but every woman has different experiences. At first, you experience a quite heavy red bleeding, which changes into a bloody-watery consistency. Later, the flow is reddish-brownish, then yellowish, and towards the end white to clear, until it (finally!) comes to an end.

Caution: You should NEVER use tampons for postpartum. If a tampon is inserted for more than three hours, lots of bacteria can build up at the cervix, which can be a breeding ground for infections. MyClarella organic postpartum pads are free of plastic, perfumes, super absorbents, bleached cotton & totally chlorine free (TCF), providing a safe postpartum protection.

How to Use

We recommend at least 2 packs for the first, usually much heavier bleeding in the early postpartum period (the first 10 days after birth). However, many women also need 3-4 packs for the first period.

About MyClarella

Founder Clara Teschner started the MyClarella journey after her own personal experience with pregnancy, giving birth and postpartum - which was not as "picture-perfect" as it's often portrayed. Realizing that there's a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the topic of postpartum recovery, she decided to turn the frustration from her own experiences into a drive to help women make their postpartum experience more enjoyable. The MyClarella team is supported by a midwife, psychologist and others to provide moms with the best possible care and education.
