Pregnant? We've got you.

Hala underwear is so much more than period underwear. It is functional underwear for every day – whether dry, bleed or leak days – and also for changing life phases. 

The pregnant and postpartum body goes through so many impressive changes, and although it’s happening and has happened for millions of people across the world for thousands of years, it still feels so surreal and magical and unique with each and every pregnancy and birth.

One thing that is spoken less about is how the bodily fluids from below change during this time. Starting with pregnancy discharge that towards the end of pregnancy can be so runny that you feel like you just peed your pants a tiny bit without being able to control it. And after giving birth, there are various levels of bleeding lasting for up to 8 weeks after birth. Even less talked about is the issue of stress incontinence after giving birth, where quite a lot of women struggle with holding their pee when sneezing, laughing or jumping.

The good news?

There’re Hala underwear styles and absorbencies that accommodate all of these things. So all you have to think about is wearing the right underwear and care for your baby. No need for liners or pads (full of plastic and glue and bleach next to your most precious parts that just went through the biggest of all things). Just put on your Halas. You may want to wear the infamous hospital net undies and postpartum pads (adult diapers?!) the first one or two days after giving birth, depending on how much you’re bleeding, but after that, you can move straight onto Hala’s Super Plus, Super and Moderate absorbencies, and eventually the Light absorbency styles. And given that you should not use a menstrual cup or tampon for at least the first 6 weeks after giving birth, leakproof underwear is an amazing replacement for pads and liners during this time.

Our best recommendations for Hala underwear for pregnancy and postpartum are the following:

>> Super Light and Light absorbency levels are perfect for that extra heavy prenatal discharge.

>> Our full-brief styles (Maya and Rita) are so comfy to wear and grow in during pregnancy.

>> Depending on your level of postpartum bleeding, our Moderate, Super and Super Plus absorbencies can be used, and the Light absorbency for the remaining days of spotting. For the heavier postpartum bleed days, the boxer styles (Layla and Nour) would be our go-to comfort.

>> If you struggle with postpartum stress incontinence, then our Light absorbency level is perfect for this too!
