Disposable Maternity Briefs and Knickers

One of the vital components of the childbirth hospital bag is disposable briefs. Refer to our Buying Disposable Underwear Guide and leave plenty of time to order your briefs in case an emergency arises.

Disposable briefs are made from two types of fabric:
- Cotton and
- Polypropylene.

Most major brands of disposable maternity underwear are made from polypropylene which is an in-elastic fabric and not suitable for holding a birth pad in place. For this reason we would recommend cotton disposable briefs. The Supersoft breathable fabric will stretch to accommodate and hold the pad in place.
