Sorry guys TMI but what's normal bleeding?? I had my baby 9 days ago and blood is still bright red. It's not heavy, but I thought it was meant to go brown or pink by now?

Bleeding after birth - what's normal?

I had heavy red blood for 4-5 weeks then spotting. If it smells off like rotten meat and you have a fever its a problem.

I bled for about 6 weeks after having bub (c-sect) and it varied in colour and amount. Mostly soptting towards the end though.

It can vary in colour and heaviness unfortunately. They say up to 6 weeks but I know with my 1st and 4th it was 8 weeks and my OB said it was fine.

Oh okay so it's normal then? I was getting used to not bleeding for the past 9 months!

I bled a lot the first and 2nd day like a lot! I felt so light headed when I stood and was pale as a ghost I actually thought I was bleeding to death (jokes) but it was extremely heavy. After that it wasn't too bad. Now at 2 and half weeks it's fairly light flow with a brownish colour.

Should be like a heavy period the first day or two. Then taper down. If it's still quite heavy and bright red I would call and check with the midwives

I bled for about 6 weeks. It got lighter after the first 2 but would be heavier again after I pushed myself when walking to much etc.
