After a few frantic calls to my midwife’s office, I was assured that my postpartum bleeding was typical and, after a few weeks, it finally tapered off. But I wish I would have known what was typical and what wasn’t, if only for my peace of mind. So, to find out more about the ins and outs of postpartum bleeding, what’s normal, and when to worry, Romper spoke with OB-GYNs Dianne Haynes, MD of Upper Chesapeake Women’s Care at the University of Maryland, James Greene, MD, Medical Director for Women’s Health, Kaiser Permanente Washington,Nicolle Underwood, MD at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, Calif., and Huma Farid, MD, at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Mass. via email.
