has she tried to go pee? Is her uterus contracting well, baby nursing? Perhaps there is a bit of placenta or clot still attatched and letting some blood through. This happened to me with dd. Peeing could help.
she is nursing i am cleaning up the crime scene .... she is recuperating and we are frantically looking for her shepards purse .... baby is doing very well....got to run amyjean respond soon with the full blow by blow ... thanks for the congrats i will pass them on...love greg
I hope the bleeding stops soon. I've read that affirmations can help stop it. If it's an internal tear you can try pressing it with gauze. Do keep an eye on it though, trickles of bleeding can lead to problems if not addressed.
yeah, my poor DH had blood smeared down the walls in the hall from trying to carry my pallete to the basement to wash. we figured uf the neighbors heard me birthing and then saw the scene, they would think there'd been a crime commited.
check for external tears. if it isn't longer than an inch or so, have Amy keep her legs together to help the tear start to mend. If it is an internal one, like the cervix, it may keep bleeding, but by now, 12:11 pm est, it should be stopped. if internal, you may need to take her in, or call a local mw for stitching.

Congrats to both of you Amy and Greg! also you might x-post ?s over in Birth Professionals. Are you applying pressure to her lower abdomen? This can help the uterus contrat a bit. Maybe also get her some Floradix tomorrow to replace iron. She'll feel better faster.
I also loved the CSI version of clean up! I will have to remember that with my birth. My childen (who love to watch CSI with me) will think it funny to refer to it as a crime scene! But boy, will they look at it in a new light.
