Post subject: Bleeding after birth
Hi ladies,
About how long does bleeding last after birth? I forgot to ask my midwife. I had a c section- not sure if this affects it at all??
Thanks heaps

With all of mine it was about 4 weeks. With the first 2 my periods returned after I had stopped breast feeding for about 6 weeks. With this one I literally stopped bleeding for about 4 days and my periods returned. Heavier and longer than ever before!

Thanks ladies.
It seems to be getting heaps lighter so hopefully will only last a wee while longer. I had read somewhere that it can take longer after a c section- although that didn't make much sense to me!

C-sections they usually can suction out a lot of the after birth. I think you are supposed to bleed lighter and shorter. I gave birth vaginally and bleed 6 weeks after each one.
