How long does postnatal bleeding last?

Most women experience bleeding until approximately two weeks after childbirth. In the beginning the bleeding (lochia) reminds a heavy period. It contains blood and peeled membrane from the uterus together with vaginal bacteria; later the lochia becomes brownish, yellowish, and in the end whitish. If the brown coloured bleeding doesn't pass or if you observe clots caused by inappropriate contracting of the uterus, you should consult your doctor or midwife.

How to take care of postnatal hygiene?

Immediately after childbirth I used airy disposable underwear. Air permeability improves healing of the wound in the perineum, and also prevents infections in the private area.

Change your sanitary pads regularly, as often as needed, but at least every four hours, as the blood attracts bacteria.

Wash your perineum with water and intimate care cleansing liquid and wipe gently with a paper towel from front to back - in order to prevent anal bacteria from getting to the vagina. Try to do this after every toilet visit.

Don't use tampons. If you start to feel an unpleasant odour from your intimate area or your skin turns red, consult your doctor or midwife.
