“If a woman comes into the delivery suite with ruptured waters gushing out, it is clear that she has ruptured her membranes and appropriate care is given. If, however, there are just little amounts or the leakage comes and goes, then we may not be so sure if the membranes have ruptured.
In these cases, we can ask the mother-to-be to pop the AL-SENSE™ panty liner on and go for a walk, or we can send them home. It saves them waiting around the hospital for hours. If the AL-SENSE™ panty liner turns blue after the leakage, then we are better informed and can manage her pregnancy accordingly.
Some women get embarrassed by their leakage, and are unsure if they need to contact their midwives. If they already have the AL- SENSE™ panty liner in their pregnancy kit then they can test at home and save themselves an inconvenient and unnecessary trip to hospital.”

“I got my package first thing this morning, just in time to pack in my hospital bag, I am or actually was 36.5 weeks pregnant. At lunch time I actually felt like I had wet myself so I thought I’d try one of these great new products, it turned blue/green so I rang my midwife who asked me to come in, 2 hours later my baby was born after an emergency c-section because there was fetal distress, without this product I may have ignored the issue and my baby may not have made it. Thank you for a brilliant product. I will save the second one for when I have my next baby! Couldn’t recommend this product enough!”
Karly, VIC, Australia
“In my experience with AL-SENSE™ panty liners I found them a huge comfort to have on hand in the later stages of pregnancy. To know, whilst being my first pregnancy and not really knowing what to expect when my waters would break, that I had them to help provide some reassurance and answers was lovely.
In my personal experience the extremely easy and quick availability of them helped acknowledge that what I had experienced was my waters rupturing and I could quickly inform my midwife and husband while being home alone.
Would definitely recommend to other pregnant woman for peace of mind and comfort especially for first timers.”
Victoria, NSW, Australia
“I was very interested to try the product as I thought it was a very smart way of giving you the peace of mind when you do get bladder leakage. Especially with my second child I was thinking the labour would be quicker and was very worried I would miss the signs like my water breaking!”
Carmine, SA, Australia
“I was always worried that the wetness was my water breaking and the pad gave me the peace of mind – otherwise I would have gone to the hospital and embarrassed myself!”
Caroline, WA, Australia
“Gives you a sense of comfort to know if it is your waters breaking or just another day being pregnant.”
Melinda, New Zealand
“In my previous pregnancy I thought my waters had broken whilst vaccuming at home. I called my husband to leave work. He had to tell colleagues. We went off to hospital, only to find I pee’d myself. Embarrassing when my husband returned to work the next day.
I was hoping to eliminate this, for my current pregnancy. And one of the days I was wearing the Al-sense pads I had a slight leak and was able to rule out my waters breaking as it didn’t turn blue.
Great product and peace of mind.”
Karen, SA, Australia
“They improved my pregnancy experience as because it’s my first, I was able to feel at ease with the increased moisture I experienced. Initially, I was concerned, but the liners helped put my mind at ease.”
Emma, NSW, Australia
“With my first child I didn’t know that my waters had broke so Al-sense pads put my mind at ease knowing that my waters hadn’t broken yet.”
Chantal, VIC, Australia
“I used the first pad when I thought I was having labour signs and the second one when I thought my waters had broken. It was good having them as it showed me that it was not my waters breaking, but just the show. It is definitely a great product for peace of mind especially if you are worried about amniotic fluid leaking.”
Renate, New Zealand
“It gave me peace of mind to know I could use the pad if I thought I may be leaking amniotic fluid. The two times I used it confirmed that I wasn’t and I was able to get on with my day without worrying or wasting a trip to hospital.”
Stephanie, QLD, Australia
“Great peace of mind knowing that if I was leaking I could go to the midwives and let them know. Better than sitting at home worrying or going to hospital for nothing.”
Lisa, NSW, Australia
“I was concerned that my amniotic fluid was leaking on two different occasions but when I used the Al-Sense pad I had the peace of mind in knowing that it was not.”
Caren, NSW, Australia
“It was good to have the Al-Sense pads on hand for reassurance that those extra secretions that occur were normal and not in fact a membranes leak. I felt comfortable wearing the pads and felt it removed unnecessary worry and anxiety from everyday situations.”
Kara, QLD, Australia
“Wearing Al-Sense pads was a reassurance or just in case. I felt more confident that the normal pregnancy discharge/ urinary leakage was just that and not broken membranes.”
Chantelle, NSW, Australia
“They just felt like wearing regular liners which was good. It was good to have piece of mind in terms of regulating whether or not there was leakage.”
Jacqui, NSW, Australia
“As I didn’t feel as if I had any leakage I thought I’d still test the product to see how comfortable it was. I found the product really easy to use and had I been concerned about a fluid leak it’s a great way to have that added peace of mind.”
