Yes… they are the womb lining coming away. Perfectly normal so try to relax 🙂

www.nhs.uk/conditions/heavy-periods/ The NHS refer to clots larger than a 10p as being a sign of heavy periods, but if you look at the whole page, there is no major worry about heavy periods, having them is quite common and not usually a sign of anything. Many many women pass blood clots during their periods.

Yep normal. If they were really large I'd probably speak to a GP but little clots can be totally normal just parts of tissue, blood cells and lining of uterus.
I passed a massive blood clot after the birth of DS about the size of a plum and that was completely normal too x
