Sudden heavy bleeding 1 wk postpartum

Kristen

I experienced a sudden hush of blood, completely overflowing my pad and ended up with what can be described as a murder scene down my legs and all over the floor ( blood + clots). It also didn’t help that I was wearing a brand new blush lace dress and was in the middle of a newborn photo session with my baby. I’m 8 days postpartum. My dr said that it’s nothing to worry about as long as it doesn’t persist and that it sounds like an accumulation of blood and clots (I had been busy running errands the last two days and experienced more cramps due to more breastfeeding sessions).

Has this happened to any of you? I was mortified (to say the least) as well as shocked and somewhat traumatized by the whole event...
