  • I bled for about 2 weeks after my 3 vaginal deliveries and only about a week after my csection, but I don't know if that's a typical response or not.

  • i think 2-8 weeks is normal. w/ a surgical birth, the bleeding often lasts a shorter period of time because some of the stuff is taken out during the surgery :)

  • about 6 weeks for #1 and #3. #2 was 2 weeks - I had an infection and ended up having to go for an emergency D&C 6days after delivering.
