I just had my son on February 1st, he was 8lbs 1oz and I had a little tear. No episiotomy, or anything like that. He came out great, no shoulder dystosia or anything and I did not hemmorage either. But now that he is here, I have been bleeding a LOT! Here and there but not like big puddles. Just a little bit here and there. But it is so much put together. Tell me how much you are supposed to bleed after birth I want to make sure that this is normal. Thank You!Answer Question

Lochia is the name given to postpartum bleeding. Every woman who delivers a child, either vaginally or through cesarean section, will experience this type of bleeding. It is the way in which your body expels excess mucus, placental tissue, and blood after giving birth.
Lochia is very similar to the bleeding you experience during your menstrual period, however, it is much heavier. It typically begins in the hours immediately following birth and usually continues for two or three weeks. However, in some women lochia can last for up to six weeks.
