Dealing with lochia

With the birth of your baby, your hormone levels have shifted. These shifts cause a vaginal discharge called lochia — a brownish to clear discharge that lasts for several weeks. Some women who've had Caesarean births are surprised at the amount of vaginal discharge they have after surgery. Even though the placenta is removed at the operation, the uterus still needs to heal and this discharge is part of the process. During your hospital stay, you'll use sanitary pads to absorb your lochia.
