Does giving birth stink?

I have never given birth, I adopted my DHs daughter. He said that when the mom delivered it was a putrid rotten smell. I said maybe she shit on the table, he said no- it was totallly different like rotten blood. I've also had some people tell me it hardly smells at all. SO which is it?

I didn't smell anything. Probably women with smelly problems down there might smell but No it doesn't smell gross. Atleast that was my experience and I had 3 kids vaginally.

But see how some people say it does? I wonder why.

I didn't notice a smell at all. And I gave birth in a small enclosed space with the heaters cranked up full blast.
