Answer: It’s completely normal. This blood is called lochia, and is a type of vaginal discharge. It will start off heavy in the days just after birth, and taper off within few month of giving birth. When the blood tapers off, it should start to become watery and turn yellow or white.
It may be alarming to see that much blood after giving birth, but it’s important to remember that the amount of blood in your body rises by 50% during pregnancy, so your body is ready for this type of heavy blood loss.
