Is it normal to be getting some spotting now at 8 weeks post baby?

Hi Alex,
I have an eight week old who was born 6weeks early via planned c section due to a past ruptured uterus that resulted in the death of my last baby. Any way all has been going great this time round. I had still had some bleeding at week 6 that my dr prescribed provera for but i did not get the script filled as it eased up considerably. I am just wondering if it is normal to still be getting some spotting now at 8 weeks post baby. I am breast feeding and am getting a bloody mucous every now and then. Just wanted to know weather i needed a trip back for a check up or is it normal to still spot bleed. Thanks Teressa

Answer: Hi Teressa, It is great that you are enjoying motherhood. Your blood loss sounds very normal and to be expected. If it does increase or become smelly then you do need to have a check up. Otherwise it is still normal to have a slight loss. Best wishes, Alex
