  • yes, as long as there is no strong smell you will probably stop bleeding soon, brown just means it's old blood

  • Yes as long as there is not smell and/or really heavy. You can bleed up to 6 weeks after having a baby.

  • Completely normal. The "brown mucus" is more than likely old blood, mixed with typical vaginal discharge. I experienced that right before I stopped bleeding with all of my children.
