Nobody Will Tell You This About Birth And Pregnancy
Prepare To Bleed
According to Baby Center, all women lose some blood during and after delivery. For a few days after you give birth, you’ll seem to have a very heavy period. Because the amount of blood in your body rises by about 50 percent during pregnancy, your body is well prepared for this normal blood loss. When the placenta separates from the uterus, there are open blood vessels in the area where it was attached, and they begin to bleed into the uterus. After the placenta is delivered, the uterus continues to contract, which closes off those blood vessels, dramatically reducing the bleeding.
