    Good evening madam and congratulations madam. it is possible the bleeding might be due to the normal vaginal bleeding/discharge which comes up after giving birth (lochia). a woman who just delivered experiences this discharge/bleeding for 4-6 weeks. it is in 3 stages. first, it is frank blood, later it becomes yellowish and then whitish and stops afterwards. by now, it should be yellowish. if what you are experiencing is Frank blood, please see your doctor
