Maternity Pads

New mums, we understand the pain before and after giving birth. Your blood loss is at its highest after a delivery. That’s why, we at Plastfree have made sure that its length at 410mm will ensure optimum fit and no leakage and its absorption at 500ml is the best in the market for maternity pads. 

When you are busy caring for your little angel, we’ll take care of you. Please change pads when full to avoid any bacterial formation, odour and discomfort.

As our Maternity maxi pads have a relatively large length at 410mm. On occassions when you bleed profusely and want a stress free sleep without worrying about a stain you may choose to wear it at night as well . Feel free to choose the Maternity range to have a peaceful night. Be kind to yourself.

“I was amazed by their high quality product. It feels very good against my skin. I was very impressed by how reliable and comfortable they are. I’m never going back to plastic pads after using these. Really pleased, they work great.”


Feels a lot more natural than other products. I started to use it as it is an eco-friendly product and now no irritations and feels safer to use. I am so pleased with it and will continue to do so. Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfy environment friendly pad.


Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about our products!

Is Plastfree made of Natural products?

Yes, all of the Plastfree products are hypoallergenic, free from fragrance, chemicals and are made from sustainable materials only.

How good is Plastfree compared with other similar ones?

Our products are kinder to your skin and absorbs 5 times more than the other brands. We have not only thought about the pad top layer using the best organic cotton, we have introduced a new leak proof 'biodegradable bottom layer' instead of plastic PE layer as given by others. We have also thought about 'disposal' as being an important part of the period waste. So wrapping the pad in cotton covers instead of plastic covers and no stickers certainly gives way to spread the message of being kinder to our planet and promoting good disposal habits. Our box is also 100% recyclable using paper instead of the nasty plastic as given by the giant brands. All these changes have made the product eco friendly and cetainly the right choice for you!

Are they good for heavy flow?

Plastfree products have layers of ultra-absorbent core in the pads, which firmly locks in the heaviest of flow. We are proud to say that our products absorb blood from 220ml to 500ml in our different sizes, which is 5 times of what is available.
