Maternity & Postpartum Collection


      A hospital bag essential. Postpartum bleeding, or “lochia”, lasts for up to 6 weeks and the last thing you want is itchy, bulky maxi pads from the hospital. Our super-absorbent underwear perfect for 2+ weeks postpartum. 

      FAQ: Postpartum Collection

      Leakproof and Breathable, our Postpartum Underwear are ideal for comfortable support and protection those weeks after giving birth. Designed to offer extra absorbency.

      We recommend choosing at least one size up from your normal size, for comfort and to accommodate any post-birth swelling.
      Yes! Period underwear are made with a super absorbent gusset made up of multiple layers that are designed to absorb period blood. Post birth, your blood flow will be heavier at first, so we recommend the Super Heavy flow underwear for leak-free confidence. The middles layers of the asset will lock the blood away from the body so you stay fresh, and it goes all the way round to the back, so they can be worn for sleep too.
      Because we recommend changing your period underwear regularly, and because your flow will be heavy for the first couple of weeks post-birth, you may need around 5 pairs at first. The thing is though, regular chores may be slightly disrupted once the baby arrives, so if you know laundry is going to be bottom of your list for a while, then grab a couple of extra pairs just in case. You know you’ll use them again once your period returns, so it’s always a good investment.
      The simple answer is no! WUKA has been committed since day one to not use any harmful chemicals in the production of our products. All of the materials that we use are planet friendly, animal friendly and contain no added chemicals, such as silver or antibacterial treatments, stain-resistant or Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs or PFSAs). All WUKA are independently tested by Highstreet Textile Testing Services Ltd (HTTS) who guarantee there is zero trace of PFA's in our products.
      "Known as “forever chemicals”, PFA's are found in non-stick pans, fast food packaging, firefighting foams, and more. PFAs are called forever chemicals because their chemistry keeps them from degrading in normal environmental conditions. Some period brands use PFA's as part of their anti-stain features. The danger of PFAs is greater if ingested. Some brands have been found to use these chemicals in the production of period underwear —in the “moisture wicking” layer—bringing PFA's in direct contact with the vagina which causes major concern about the health impact these might have. Because we don’t know the possible impact that these chemicals might have, WUKA stands firm in its commitment to not include any level of traceable PFAs is our products. Because period underwear (and regular underwear!) are worn in a very sensitive area, it’s important they are made from natural materials that are kind to skin.
