Re: Bleeding after c-section?
I think there's misinformation out there that they give you sort of a D&C when you've had a cesarean. That's not true. They detach the placenta and make sure there's no membranes inside but you still have a typical lochia flow after the baby. I will tell you though, you'll want to use their mattress-pad thingies the first week or so after you deliver because with all the laying down/sitting that you will be doing in the first few days as you recover it will come out of you in a huge rush when you stand. It's gross and there's just nothing that can contain it that quickly. I've had four cesareans.
