DO YOU BLEED AFTER A C SECTION

theDreadPirateRoberts Tue 16-Jun-09 11:58:16

Yes - if you mean lochea. Not as much as a VB though.

Yes. The placenta is about the size of a dinner plate so it leaves quite a wound site.

I bled for 6 weeks or so.

Ceebee74 Tue 16-Jun-09 11:58:56

Yes - no experience of a normal birth but I suspect the amount of bleeding is quite similar.

Both times I bled quite heavily for at least 3 weeks.

I had pretty light bleeding, didn't need maternity pads, normal Always were sufficient. It lasted about 4 or 5 weeks iirc.. after a couple of days it was like a light period.

I bled for 8 weeks after my 2nd CS.

I bled for about 5 weeks but always light bleeding. Nothing like the REALLY heavy bleeding I got after normal birth!

I bled after my CS, can't remember if it was worse or better than my natural births tho... although I do remember bleeding for about 8-10 weeks

I had the same amount of bleeding after my CS as I did after my Vbac. .

I also wondered about this stupid question prior to my first section.

The answer is yes, and it was roughly the same amount as following my vaginal delivery.
