After my first csection I bled for approximately 3 months. Still not sure whether this was retained product, an accidental laceration or just hereditary.
My GM, mother, aunties and cousin have all experienced extended bleeding after birth and needed blood transfusions.
Ok my question: is there any way I an prepare for this as bub number 2 is due again soon via csection? Diet, supplements or any other tips appreciated! Thanks! It was such ahard time physically and emotionally with a newborn, I want to be as strong as can be this time around!

Make sure you have good hemoglobin levels. This will help you recover better if you do bleed.
So if you haven't already, talk to your Dr or mw about iron supplements and eating iron rich foods.

Thanks I have spoken with the doctor regarding this - he recommended to eat lots of beef.
How do you measure hemagoblin levels?

Start taking iron supplements a couple of weeks before the csection. Your poo will turn black. Eat lots of fibre to counteract constipation. I suffered excess blood loss during my last csection and my OB put me straight on iron.

If your going to take iron have a look at spatone works really well without the constipation
