Maternity pads are longer, softer, and much more absorbent than ordinary sanitary pads. The reason you need so many pads is that bleeding from your uterus (womb) will start soon after your baby is born. The bleeding is called lochia. The blood can be very heavy and clotty. You'll probably notice the bleeding lessens over the first six hours to 12 hours while you're resting after your baby's birth. But when you get up and move around, you may have a rush of blood. This is because the blood pools inside your body, escaping when you change position.
